More than a quarter of voters have switched their presidential choice since the beginning of the year, a new poll shows.

The Rasmussen Report survey released Wednesday finds that 54 percent of likely voters support the candidate they liked on Jan. 1, but 28 percent have switched to another contender, while 15 percent are still undecided.

In a breakdown by party, Republicans — who started out with a field of 17 primary candidates to consider — are the most likely to have changed, with 36 percent of GOP voters saying they've switched horses, compared with 23 percent of Democrats and 27 percent of independents, the poll shows.

Only 48 percent of Republicans still favor their first choice, compared with 68 percent of Democrats and 43 percent of independents, the survey finds.

The pollster said a game-changer for the White House race may hinge on the undecideds: 26 percent of independents, 12 percent of Republicans and 8 percent of Democrats fall into that category.

In other findings:
  • 38 percent of voters think the current primary process is a good way to select a presidential candidate; 40 percent consider it a bad way to do things; 22 percent aren't sure;
  • 46 percent of voters think the number of debate is about right, 29 percent say there's too many and 19 percent think there's too few;
The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
