Kasich's popularity rising, poll shows

Published: Thu, February 28, 2013 @ 11:25 a.m.

COLUMBUS — Gov. John Kasich’s approval numbers continued their upward trend in the latest survey of registered Ohio voters.

More than half —53 percent — of 1,011 questioned by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute said they approved of Kasich’s work in office, the highest total the governor has received since taking office. Only 32 percent said they disapproved of his efforts.

Kasich also is leading four potential Democratic challengers, with former Attorney General Richard Cordray coming closest (losing 44 percent to 38 percent).

Kasich outpaced Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, current U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Niles, D-13th, and former U.S. Rep. Betty Sutton by margins of seven to 10 percentage points, though many voters indicated they didn’t know enough about the candidates to form an opinion.

Also, these polls are before the propaganda machines on both sides get going.

One can only hope littleTimmy R runs for gov, gets his butt whipped, and then settles in to some high-paying, meaningless pork barrel government job. Maybe he can head Obamacare that he so deeply supports and help bring the country to its financial knees.

Then Bobby Hagan can run for Congress and hire Marc Dann (former convict) as his chief-of-staff.

That's democracy, Mahoning Valley Democratic Party style.
