A poll released this week shows Donald Trump may have to work very hard to win over voters who backed his rivals.

Polling data from Morning Consult shows nearly 70 percent of Sen. Ted Cruz supporters have an unfavorable impression of Trump with only 62 percent saying they would back the presumptive Republican nominee in the general election.

Thirteen percent of the Cruz supporters said they would support Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton instead.

Those who supported the Texas senator, who dropped out of the race following his loss in the Indiana primary Tuesday, don’t appear ready to flock to Trump as their alternate candidate.

But survey data shows Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s supporters are even less enamored of the billionaire businessman. Kasich had promised to stay in the race, even releasing a Star Wars inspired ad claiming he was the “only hope” in defeating Clinton. Hours after the advertisement came out on Wednesday, he suspended his campaign.

The governor’s supporters have a 79 percent unfavorable view of Trump. Only about half said they would back Trump in the general election while 25 percent said they would actually choose Clinton.

While there is time in the months ahead for Trump to try to win over many of these voters, it is clear there are many fences to mend in the campaigning aftermath.
