Voters say that Trump’s comments about a judge of Mexican heritage are racist. U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel is hearing a fraud case against Trump University. Trump said Curiel was being unfair to him because the judge is “Mexican” and Trump wants to build a wall along the border with Mexico. Curiel was born in Indiana.
In Ohio, Clinton is picking up support among women and non-white voters while Trump leads with whites and men.
Ohioans say Trump is more honest, trustworthy and inspiring and a stronger leader who would be better than Clinton at creating jobs and fighting ISIS. But they find Clinton better prepared, more intelligent and has higher moral standards and would do a better job on immigration and international crises, the poll found.
The poll was conducted June 8-19 through live interviews on land lines and cellphones. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points in Florida and Ohio and 3.2 percentage points in Pennsylvania.
