Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio each got 9 percent of the vote, and John Kasich and Chris Christie each took 8 percent.

Nearly 40 percent of those polled said they weren't sure who Trump should pick, or they didn't have an opinion.

As for whether Carson would consider serving as vice president under Trump, he seemed open to the idea during an interview with Fox Business last month.

"I certainly would sit down and discuss it with him," Carson said.

Media outlets have speculated in recent weeks, if he scores the Republican nomination, Trump could look to Florida Governor Rick Scott, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, former rival Carly Fiorina or former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate.
