PRES: A KTVT-TV/Dixie Strategies poll shows Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton, 46%-35%, in Texas. Nine percent prefer “another candidate,” and 9% are undecided. Trump leads among men, 49%-34%, and Clinton is within the margin of error among women, trailing Trump 42%-39%. Trump leads among Anglos, 51%-31%. Clinton leads among Hispanics/Latinos, 48%-32%, and among African-Americans, 71%-12%. Trump’s support among African-Americans seems high to us, based on historical African-American voting trends in presidential elections.

Both candidates are each viewed “very unfavorably” by a majority of likely voters. Trump is viewed unfavorably by 60% of voters, which makes him slightly less unpopular than Clinton, who is viewed unfavorably by 66% of voters. Trump is viewed unfavorably by 65% of Hispanics/Latinos and 88% of African-Americans. Clinton is viewed unfavorably by 71% of men.
