COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A new poll shows Ohio Gov. John Kasich trailing Democrat Hillary Clinton in a hypothetical matchup in Ohio but still faring better than any other GOP candidate.

The poll released Thursday by Quinnipiac University in Connecticut shows Clinton, the former secretary of state, leading the Republican Kasich 47 percent to 42 percent in the state.

The same poll in February had Clinton leading by a 51-to-39 percent margin.

Thursday's poll also has Clinton leading former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush 48 percent to 39 percent in Ohio and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida 47 percent to 40 percent.

The survey of 1,174 Ohio voters was conducted by phone from May 7 to 12. It has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio Gov. John Kasich is among prospective Republican challengers lagging Democrat Hillary Clinton in an independent poll of prospective 2016 presidential matchups.

A Quinnipiac University survey released Thursday finds Ohio voters favor Clinton over Kasich 51 percent to 39 percent. Nearly half say Kasich wouldn't make a good president, compared with 55 percent who believe Clinton would.

Among Republicans tested, 2012 vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan fared best against Clinton in the critical battleground state.

Kasich came next, followed by Sen. Rand Paul and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in a tie; Sen. Marco Rubio; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; and Sen. Ted Cruz.

Margin of error for the telephone survey of 1,370 registered voters conducted February 12 to 17 is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
