What Recent Swing State Polling Says about Ohioans

06/24/2016

The Quinnipiac Swing State Poll focuses on Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania because since 1960 no candidate has won the presidential race without taking at least two of these three states. The poll results released this week show:

  • Gender, age and racial gaps mark the Ohio U.S. Senate race. Portman leads 46 – 37 percent among men, 48 – 36 percent among white voters and 51 – 34 percent among voters over 65 years old.
  • Strickland leads 46 – 39 percent among women, 69 – 15 percent among non-white voters and 46 – 27 percent among voters 18 to 34 years old.

Ohio women are moving to Clinton in greater numbers, from 43 – 36 percent over Trump May 10 to 48 – 31 percent today. There is little change in Trump’s support among men, 51 – 36 percent in May and 49 – 32 percent today. He leads 76 – 6 percent among Republicans and 41 – 32 percent among independent voters, while Democrats back Clinton 80 – 9 percent.
