About one-third of Texas voters say they are unsure who they’ll vote for in the general election or will support someone other than the major candidates, according to a new Texas statewide poll conducted by Leland Beatty.

The poll finds that Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by about 7 points in the state. The presumptive GOP nominee garnered the support of 36.8 percent of respondents, while Clinton won the support of 29.7 percent. Only 2.6 percent of respondents support Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson.

For undecided voters or those not supporting the three candidates listed, the honesty and integrity of the candidates ranked as the most important issue, followed by the economy and jobs.

Over half of respondents who identified as Republicans said they may vote for down-ballot candidates outside the party, and about 27 percent of Republicans said they may not vote for a Republican at the top of the ticket.

The poll was conducted among 998 respondents from June 13-14. The margin of error is 3.1 percentage points.

Clinton won the Texas Democratic primary over Bernie Sanders by 32 points. Trump finished second in the GOP primary, trailing Texas Sen. Ted Cruz by 17 points.
