The Issue Two Race Tightens; Follow the Nationwide Area $$ Closely

This week, WOSU Public Media’s “Columbus on the Record” panelists discuss polling numbers, which show that Issue 2 (the repeal of Ohio Senate Bill 5) is winning, but is losing support. Also John Kasich‘s numbers are up a little, but still carries a negative 40 – 49 percent overall job approval.

Other topics: is the new Nationwide Arena deal a guarantee Jackets will stay when their current lease is supposed to keep them here? early polling results for the Presidential and the Sherrod Brown – Josh Mandel race; and fixing Ohio’s redistricting process – in ten years.
