Kasich Continues Lead In Latest Poll
A new independent poll says Governor John Kasich continues to hold a lead over Democratic challenger Ed Fitzgerald in next yearâ€™s election.
The poll from Quinnipiac University gives Kasich a 44-to-37 percent lead.
That lead shrinks slightly with independent voters.
Kasich holds a strong lead among male Ohio voters and a one-point lead among women.
“Ohio Gov. John Kasich enters his reelection year with only a 7-point lead over a largely unknown challenger,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
“On the plus side, his approval ratings mark a huge turnaround from his first two years, when his job approval was in the 30s and Democrats were licking their chops at the prospect of making him a one-termer,”
“But he’s below the 50 percent mark in the matchup and on whether he deserves reelection.”
Kasich held a 13-point lead in a Quinnipiac poll earlier this year.
