Nearly two-thirds of Democratic voters said they would be open to changing their minds about who they support in the party's 2020 primaries, according to a new poll. 

In a CNN survey released Tuesday, 64 percent of Democrats and likely Democrats who had selected a favorite presidential candidate said it is possible they might change their mind. Thirty-six percent said they "definitely support" their top choice.

The poll was conducted April 25-28. Among the 1,007 respondents, 411 were Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents who are registered to vote and 367 said they had already chosen a candidate to support in the party's 2020 primary.

The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
