A new NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll finds 34 percent of people say they would vote for President Trump, if the general election were held today. Fewer—29 percent—would vote for the Democrat, "regardless of who they are." But, 17 percent of people say their vote depends on who the Democrats select as their nominee and 15 percent of people say they don't know who they would vote for, underlining the stakes involved in this year's Democratic primary contest.
