Additional Trend Information

Gov. John Kasich is the strong favorite in November presidential matchups in Ohio, thumping former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by 17 percentage points and burning Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont by 19 points, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Kasich tops Clinton 54 - 37 percent, including 57 - 27 percent among independent voters in Ohio, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. The native son governor leads Sanders 54 - 35 percent, including 51 - 33 percent among independent voters.

Most other potential November matchups are too close to call:
  • Trump 44 percent to Clinton's 42 percent;
  • Cruz 46 percent to Clinton's 43 percent;
  • Rubio tops Clinton 47 - 42 percent;
  • Trump and Sanders tied 44 - 44 percent;
  • Sanders at 44 percent, with Cruz at 42 percent;
  • Rubio at 44 percent to Sanders' 42 percent.
If former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg runs as a third party candidate, results are:
  • Trump 38 percent, with Sanders at 35 percent and Bloomberg at 13 percent;
  • Cruz and Sanders tied 37 - 37 percent, with 11 percent for Bloomberg.
"The four leading Republican candidates either tie or lead former Secretary Clinton in Ohio, considered the best microcosm of the national electorate and a must-win for the GOP. Republicans have never won the White House without carrying Ohio," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"Sen. Bernie Sanders, meanwhile, fares only slightly better against the Republicans."

"The face-off in Ohio between the two front-runners, former Secretary Clinton and businessman Donald Trump is too close to call," Brown added. "Despite their delegate leads in their respective nomination fights, these leaders find themselves with similarly strongly negative net favorability ratings, much more so than any other Democratic or Republican contender."

Kasich has the best favorability rating of any candidate, 56 - 28 percent. Sanders' 44 - 41 percent rating and Rubio's 36 - 34 percent score are the only other favorability ratings above water. All other candidates have negative ratings:
  • 35 - 59 percent for Trump;
  • 37 - 57 percent for Clinton;
  • 34 - 46 percent for Cruz;
  • 14 - 30 percent for Bloomberg.
Senate Race

In Ohio's U.S. Senate race, former Gov. Ted Strickland, the Democrat, gets 44 percent, with 42 percent for Republican incumbent Sen. Rob Portman. Independent voters go 42 percent for Strickland and 38 percent for Portman.

Portman tops Cincinnati City Council member P.G. Sittenfeld 48 - 29 percent.

The Republican has a 42 - 18 percent favorability rating, while Strickland gets a 42 - 31 percent score. For Sittenfeld, 85 percent don't know enough to form an opinion of him.

"The Ohio U.S. Senate race is a statistical tie between incumbent Sen. Rob Portman and former Gov. Ted Strickland. If the contest remains this close, the outcome of the presidential race in Ohio could make the difference in the Senate contest," Brown said.

From February 16 - 20, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,539 Ohio registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.5 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and the nation as a public service and for research.
