Poll: Clinton Sweeps Ohio In Potential Presidential Matchups

May 16, 2014

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Governor John Kasich trailing Democrat Hillary Clinton in Ohio in a hypothetical presidential matchup.

The poll also shows Kasich fares better than any other GOP candidate. The survey of nearly 12 hundred registered Ohio voters shows the former Secretary of State leading Kasich 47 percent to 42 percent, down from a 12 point difference in a similar poll released last February. It also shows Clinton leads former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida in Ohio. Meanwhile, the survey shows 39 percent of Ohioans approve of President Obama's job performance, down slightly from February.
