A poll commissioned by several Texas Democrats indicates a third of “likely” 2016 general election voters do not presently plan to vote for presumptive nominees Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. Among poll respondents, Trump leads by 7 points, 37%-30%.
Leland Beatty conducted the poll of 998 Texas voters via live telephone calls on June 13-14. The poll has a stated margin of error of ±3.1%. Its sample includes 61% female voters, which would appear to be an over-representation. No other demographic information was included in the summary or limited crosstabs.
Straight-ticket voters comprise much of each presidential candidate’s support: 63% of Trump’s supporters and 58% of Clinton’s supporters intend to vote a straight ticket. Just 7% of Trump’s supporters would “vote for some Democrats” while 19% of Clinton’s supporters would “vote for some Republicans.”
