OHIO POLL: Clinton maintains slight edge over Trump, 41-38
Kasich finds support in non-endorsement
Muslim ban support lags
(DES MOINES) – Hillary Clinton has a 41%-38% lead over Donald Trump in the pivotal swing state of Ohio, according to the latest poll of likely voters conducted by RABA Research, a bipartisan polling firm.
“Even after what was widely viewed as a turbulent month for Donald Trump, he is still within a margin of error striking distance to Clinton,” said Republican Tim Albrecht, founder and partner of RABA Research. “This state is up for grabs.”
The poll also found support for Gov. John Kasich’s non-endorsement of Trump by a margin of 48% to 30%, showing limited backlash as his state prepares to host the Republican National Convention in just over two weeks.
“Whether there are a number of reluctant Trump supporters, or Kasich is just that popular, either way he’s not taking a hit for not supporting the Republican nominee,” said Democrat Brad Anderson, a partner and founder of RABA Research.
Less popular, however, is Donald Trump’s support for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S.
When Ohio voters are asked, “Donald Trump has called for a ban on all Muslims entering the United States. Do you support this idea, or oppose it?” 47% of respondents oppose the proposal, while 36% support. 17% are not sure.
