More than two-thirds of Democratic voters think Hillary Clinton will win the party’s presidential nomination, while Republicans think Jeb Bush is the most likely to win -- according to an online poll.

The poll, conducted by NBC News and SurveyMonkey, found that 50 percent of Democrats would vote for Clinton while a whopping 68 percent think she will eventually capture the party’s nomination. A plurality of Republicans, 37 percent, said they did not know who would win their party's contest.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker edged out former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, 13 percent to 12 percent, in the amount of support from GOP voters. Still, 24 percent said they expect Bush to win the nomination.

Just 8 percent of Republicans think Walker will become the nominee, tied with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

The NBC News-­‐SurveyMonkey Poll was conducted online April 6-8, 2015 among a national sample of 2,052 adults aged 18 and over. Respondents for this non-­probability survey were selected from among those who have volunteered to participate in the SurveyMonkey Contribute panel.
