New poll: Ohioans give bad marks to Gov. Kasich and his budget



Published: Wed, March 23, 2011 @ 10:10 a.m.

COLUMBUS — Ohio voters aren't giving high marks to Gov. John Kasich, his budget or Republican plans to curb union power in the state, according to the latest poll by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Forty-six percent of voters disapprove of the way Kasich ishandling the job, compared only 30 percent who approved of it.

Fifty-three percent of voters believe Kasich's $55.5 billion biennial budget proposal is unfair.

And about half of respondents opposed changes in state law that would limit collective bargaining for public workers.

"Gov. John Kasich has gotten off to a rocky start with Ohio voters, perhaps not surprising given the size of the cuts in public services and state spending that he has proposed," Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling institute, said in a released statement today.

"Although there is almost nothing in these numbers that Kasich can point to as evidence of his

popularity or that of his proposals, he can take solace from the fact that he has almost four years to turn around public opinion."

It's like limiting an alcoholic to 4 drinks a day, he or she wants the whole case or else. It will take a few years to get better(living with your means)

They should be happy their working because taxpayers do not want or need higher city,county, State taxes.

Your governor is an obstructionist who killed thousands of jobs by turning down the federal program to build a rail system. Why? He would rather make citizens suffer to undermine Obama than put the people of Ohioans to work. Now he wants to attack public employees. Good luck Ohio.

Clearly georgejeanie, you are a coldhearted conservative. Yes, that adjective for the bleeding heart liberals can be turned around to its opposite to describe people like you. Glad to know you're inhumane?

Pigs at the trough? I imagine you're quite hefty yourself. People like you usually are.

Luckily Ohioans have come to their senses about Kasich, as this poll reveals. Whatever he does will be undone in the future. We just have to put up with him for a short period of time in the long run.

How about the wealthy corporations that don't pay their damned taxes sacrificing by doing their simple duty of paying taxes again? Maybe then we wouldn't be in this situation. Look at the ball coming toward you, or else it'll smack you in the face.

If enough people went out and voted instead of saying he couldn't win, he would not have won. If you didn't vote----don't complain. He told us what he was going to do if elected. It is going to be a tough 4 years.

redeye, surely you have to include these elected officials that make these laws. but wait, they're not cutting their own pay and they're not paying into their own healthcare and pensions. until they themselves make sacrifices, they're in no place to tell anyone else to.

For all of you putting so much faith in this "survey", go talk to someone with a background in statistics and ask that person what is meant by the term "data set" and what it means to the outcome of a survey?

Hint, with the right data set I can legitimately claim that a black dog is a white cat!

i'm referring to kasich and his cronies' crusade against public employees (aka sb 5). they expect teachers, police and firefighters to take pay and benefits cuts while ignoring that they themselves are public employees. they call for raises to these employees to be given only by "merit." however, all the elected officials need to do to for a raise is call for a vote. gee i wonder how many of those will say "no" to more money.

The poll should have been, "If the election were held again tomorrow, would Kasich be reelected?" My guess is NO.

Tigerlily,As a frozenhearted conservative,I don't want to help anyone who can't help themselves,nor do I want to support public sector jobs that have few boundaries as to where their pay and benefits reach. There's many reasons why you chose Tigerlily for your username,from the Tigerlily foundation to a beautiful flower. But you come across more as potted plant.
