Large segment of CT primary voters could be swayed

A poll released today by Quinnipiac University shows comfortable leads for Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump in their respective primaries to be held April 26.

Voters appear to be fluid in their thinking, though, with 25 percent of Republicans saying they could still change their minds before Tuesday and 18 percent of Democrats saying they could switch.

Clinton has a 51 to 42 percent lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. However, 6 percent are still undecided. Clinton is bolstered by a 66 - 25 percent lead among black likely Democratic primary voters and a wide margin among women Democrats.

Trump is close to the 50 percent mark among Connecticut likely Republican primary voters, while Ohio Gov. John Kasich tops Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas in the race for second place. Likely Republican primary voters give Trump 48 percent, with 28 percent for Kasich and 19 percent for Cruz. Only 5 percent are undecided.

From April 12 - 18, Quinnipiac University surveyed 823 Connecticut likely Republican primary voters with a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percentage points and 1,037 likely Democratic primary voters with a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.
