Already?! First Poll On 2010 Governor’s Race

The next gubernatorial race is nearly two years away but a new poll shows Governor Ted Strickland’s two potential challengers have some work to do to build name recognition.

A Quinnipiac university poll shows three-quarters of Ohioans don’t know two of Strickland’s potential 2010 challengers, former congressmen John Kasich and Rob Portman.

The poll shows 54% of Ohio voters have a favorable opinion of Governor Strickland and 45% think he should be re-elected.

We’ll likely discuss this on this week’s COTR.
