Less than half of registered GOP voters believe Donald Trump will be able to unify the party if he becomes the Republican presidential nominee, a new Pew Research Center study released Thursday shows.

In a poll of 2,254 adults conducted from March 17 to 27:
  • 38 percent say Trump will be able to get the party to "unite solidly";
  • In 2012, 65 percent said then-nominee Mitt Romney would unify the party;
  • In 2008, 64 percent said John McCain was a unifier.
In addition, the poll found that supporters for Trump's rivals, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, do not believe Trump would be a good president.
  • Cruz: 50 percent of backers say Trump would be "poor or terrible," and 28 percent, "terrible";
  • Kasich: 55 percent, poor or terrible; 36 percent, "terrible."
Among Democrats:
  • 64 percent said Hillary Clinton would unify the party;
  • 28 percent of Bernie Sanders' supporters say Clinton will make a "terrible or poor" president.
The poll carried a margin of error overall of 2.4 percentage points, reports Politico, and among the 1,787 who were registered voters, the margin of error was 2.6 percentage points.

The sample contained 834 Republicans, with a margin of error of 3.9 percentage points, and 842 Democrats, with a 3.8 percentage point margin of error.
