Latest Poll Shows SB5 Heading Toward Repeal

This week, WOSU Public Media’s “Columbus on the Record” panelists discuss the latest Quinnipiac Poll, which shows that Ohio voters support 56 – 32 percent the repeal of SB 5 (Issue 2), the centerpiece of Governor John Kasich’s legislative program. “With two weeks until Election Day, the opponents of SB 5 have strong reason to be optimistic,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
