Early polling numbers show John Kasich with a good chance of winning his home state of Ohio. It looks to be a tight race between Kasich and Donald Trump to win Ohio’s 66 delegates.
The two candidates are tied for first in both the Quinnipiac and CBS News/YouGov polls. Kasich leads in all other major early Ohio polls conducted within the last week.
Kasich faces a must-win scenario in his home state to have any chance of staying in the race for the nomination. A win for Trump would also be a blow to Ted Cruz who is aiming to narrow Trump’s lead in delegates.
Here’s a look at the latest Republican Ohio polls.
