Gov. John Kasich's presidential campaign had him virtually living in New Hampshire, and these days he's spreading himself across the SuperTuesday primary states.

Ohio’s primary is now  three weeks away and a new poll shows Donald Trump is leading the race even inGov. JohnKasich’shome state.WKSU’sM.L.Schultzehas more from the latest Quinnipiac Poll.

  The poll shows Trump with 31 percent support from likely Ohio GOP voters andKasichwith 26 percent. Trump’s support is the most solidified, with nearly eight out of 10 saying they won’t change their minds.  In contrast, nearly half ofKasich’ssupporters say they could switch by March 15.

Quinnipiac’s Peter Brown says Ohio can expect to be inundated with the presidential candidates and their surrogates in the weeks to come.

“Three weeks is an awful long time. The question is how much attention each of the candidates will pay to  Ohio. It comes up the same day as the Florida primary and the Florida primary has a good deal more delegates available. But they’re both very important states.”

Both Ohio and Florida are winner-take-all states for Republicans.

On the Democratic side, the poll shows Hillary Clinton besting Bernie Sanders 55-40 percent. Sanders is holding a rally Thursday at Baldwin Wallace University, his second visit to Northeast Ohio since November.
