Stefanik was lowest among all voters with just 13% reporting they would likely vote for a Trump-Stefanik ticket, while Gabbard received 19% support. Also mentioned as possible picks to be Trump's running mate are Republican Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota, who received 16% support from those polled, and Republican Gov. Doug Burgum, who was favored by 15 % of respondents.
