Republicans who don't support Donald Trump are more likely to prefer either Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio should the race go to a one-on-one contest, or would even favor a contested convention rather than have Trump take the nomination, a new ABC News/Washington Post poll reveals.

By the numbers, Trump continues to lead overall in the poll of 1,000 Republican and Republican-leaning voters surveyed by phone on March 3-6:
  • Donald Trump: 34 percent
  • Ted Cruz: 25 percent
  • Marco Rubio: 18 percent
  • John Kasich: 13 percent
But in one-on-one matchups:
  • Cruz leads Trump by 54-41 percent
  • Rubio leads Trump by 51-45 percent
  • Among non-Trump supporters, seven in 10 say they'd prefer Cruz or Rubio.
  • Very conservative Republicans: Cruz  over Trump, 60-34 percent; Rubio over Trump, 56-41 percent;
  • Evangelical white Protestants: Cruz over Trump  by 64-31; Rubio over Trump, 55-42 percent.
In January, Trump had a 16-point lead and Ohio Gov. John Kasich was in the single digits:
  • Donald Trump: 37 percent
  • Ted Cruz: 21 percent
  • Marco Rubio: 11 percent
  • John Kasich: 2 percent
Trump's lead over Cruz is now 9 points.

Among Democrats, Hillary Clinton's lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders has slipped to an all-time low:
  • Hillary Clinton: 49 percent
  • Bernie Sanders: 42 percent.
Clinton held a 19-point lead over Sanders three months ago.
