A new independent poll holds both good and bad news for Ohio Governor John Kasich. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports.
For the first time since he took office, Governor John Kasich has a positive approval rating in the Quinnipiac University poll. The latest poll shows Ohio’s registered voters approve of the way Governor John Kasich is doing his job 40 to 34 percent. But it also shows voters, by a 43 to 36 percent margin, believe Kasich shouldn’t have a second term. The Quinnipiac Poll’s Peter Brown says Former Governor Ted Strickland is leading the pack of potential Democratic candidate with 41 percent of Ohio voters saying they have a favorable view of him.
Brown Obviously if Strickland decides to run, he starts off as the favorite because of the name recognition. But there’s a funny thing about name recognition….money can buy it.
One surprising outcome of the poll…..all voters surveyed….by a margin of 44 to 37 percent…. believe another Republican should challenge Kasich in the primary.
