Poll: Trump Trails Generic Democrat In Ohio

A new Public Policy Polling survey shows Donald Trump trailing a generic Democratic opponent 47-48 percent and his favorable/unfavorable rating is underwater at 47-51 percent.

Innovation Ohio notes that among vital independent voters, Trump trails a generic Democrat 37-51 percent.

“Ohio is a must-win state for President Trump. His poor numbers in this poll help to explain his early spending on TV and digital ads here,” said Innovation Ohio President Janetta King.

Trump won Ohio in 2016 decisively by 8 points.

Tested against five Democratic candidates Trump couldn’t break through the 47 percent mark.
