Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is losing to former reality-television host Donald Trump by three percentage points in his home state, according to a poll from the Democratic-leaning firm Public Policy Polling released Monday.

The poll showed support for Trump at 38 percent, followed by Kasich at 35 percent. Languishing far behind them were Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) at 15 percent and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) at 5 percent.

Polling from Ohio has been fairly sparse in the 2016 cycle, with the previous PPP poll taken before Trump had entered the race in June. What pollingdoes exist has shown Trump in the lead since the fall, albeit with smaller margins than he has enjoyed nationwide. Kasich has mostly finished second.

There is not enough data to generate a TPM PollTracker Average.

The PPP poll was carried out from March 4-6 by live telephone interview. Pollsters surveyed 638 people likely to vote in the Republican primary, with a margin of error of 3.9 percentage points.
