      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.
