Strickland needs epic push to win, poll shows

Published: Tue, October 19, 2010 @ 8:48 a.m.


Republican gubernatorial challenger John Kasich is maintaining his lead over Democratic incumbent Ted Strickland among likely voters questioned by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Kasich held a 51 percent-41 percent lead over Strickland, statistically unchanged from Quinnipiac’s poll two weeks ago.

“John Kasich’s lead has remained the same, and the sand is slipping through the hour glass,” Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the institute, said in a released statement. If Gov. Ted Strickland is going to turn this election around, he needs to do it quickly. But the obvious question is, “What can Strickland do in the two weeks before Election Day that he has been unable to do so far?”

Brown added, “Anything is possible in politics, but if Gov. Strickland is able to pull out a victory, it will take the kind of final drive that makes history.”

Connecticut-based Quinnipiac regularly gauges Ohioan’s opinions of candidates and issues.

It polled 1,188 likely voters in the state over the past week on the gubernatorial race and President Barack Obama’s actions in office.

The results have a margin of error of about 3 percent.

The "fat lady" is putting on her wardrobe and loosening up the pipes! Ted is a hell of a good guy and someone you would like as a neighbor but he is overmatched for the governor post. But, to his credit, he wasn't a bozo like Taft!

If Strickland loses, what will he do?
Run for Congress again? Finally move into his "home' in Lisbon? Join the Village People? Run for guv in 2014? He has been a pretty effective and continuous candidate.

1970mach1...you might want to ask former congressman Kasich that question. It looks like he is returning to the public trough. Be careful what you vote for..remember Governor Taft and his new taxes? He was Ohio's version of George Bush.

Ted should have asked Barney Frank to help him get votes . Dave Betras considers Barney a political dynamo . The democrats are the victims of Obama fatigue brought on by OBAMACARE !

Why would I ask John Kasich what Ted Strickland is going to do? I'd think TS would know much better than JK.

Also, I really have no way of contacting JK to ask him, and if I did he'd probably tell me the obvious -to go ask TS.
