A survey conducted by Monmouth University shows a large preference for Donald Trump among Republican Alabama voters, just one day before the primary election.

The telephone survey, conducted between Feb. 25-28, asked those who intended to vote who they planned to vote for if the election was held that day.

42 percent of Alabama respondents picked Trump as their candidate. Marco Rubio was a distant second with 19 percent. Ted Cruz followed with 11 percent, Ben Carson with 11, and John Kasich with 5 percent.

On the Democratic ticket, Hillary Clinton has an even larger lead against her chief contender, Bernie Sanders.

Survey results show 71 percent of Alabama respondents would choose Clinton, compared with 23 percent favoring Sanders.

Alabama's primary election will be held Tuesday.
