Former Governor Strickland's Favorability Rating Far Exceeds Kasich's
A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday indicates that for the first time since Ohio's Republican governor was inaugurated in January 2011, a plurality of Buckeye State voters are giving Kasich a thumbs up.
According to the survey, 42% approve of the job Kasich is doing as governor, with 35% saying they disapprove of his performance. And by a 40%-34% margin, Ohio voters have a favorable opinion of him.
But by a 43%-36% margin, Ohio voters say Kasich doesn't deserve a second term in office.
Former Gov. Ted Strickland, who was defeated by Kasich in the 2010 election, has a 41%-29% favorable rating doubling Kasich's score with Ohioans.
