Sen. Bernie Sanders would attract voters to the fold for likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as her running mate, while Sen. Marco Rubio would give a bump to GOP presumption nominee Donald Trump's ticket, a new poll shows.

The Monmouth University survey released Thursday tested six possible vice presidential picks from each party to see who attracted voters — and who'd hurt the ticket.

For Hillary Clinton:
  • 39 percent would be more likely to vote Democratic with Sanders on the ticket, while 20 percent would be less likely; among the undecided or leaning toward a third party candidate, the more-likely/less-likely split rises to 50-15 percent.
  • Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren gets a 24-21 percent more-likely/less-likely split; New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker posts a 13-13 percent result; Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine gets a 9-13 percent split; Housing and Urban Development secretary Julian Castro posts a 10-17 percent result, and Minnesota Sen. Al Franken has a 12-21 percent more-likely/less-likely split.
For Donald Trump:
  • Rubio garnered a 27-20 percent more-likely/less-likely split as a Trump running mate — with the numbers the same for independents and undecided voters.
  • The more-likely/less-likely split was 9-17 percent for Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions; 7-15 percent for Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst, 24-26 percent for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich; 20-28 percent for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and 13-42 percent for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
Among uncommitted voters, Christie's more-likely/less-likely percentages sank to 15-36; while Palin's bottomed out at 7-54.

The survey's margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

"These findings are based in large part on name recognition, but the results do underscore one key truth about vice presidential nominees," said Patrick Murray, the polling director. "They usually do not have a significant impact on the national electorate."
