Ill bet that they 50%who rated him as doing a poor job, would give the messiah an excellent mark, and vice versa for the excellent and good also.

Gotta love the people who know they can't defend Kasich, so the fling mud on the opposing party, as if that somehow validates Kasich's terrible performance so far.

Kasich has given large chunks of money to a few cronies of his, and he's pretty well alienated himself from most of Ohio's Middle Class working people, Republican and Democrat alike. And he passed a budget that has and will continue to make things harder for local municipalities to make ends meet. And nobody has ever been able to answer this: What IS he doing with the money he's not giving back to the local governments?

Somehow, "poor" isn't a strong enough word to be an option for the worst choice. How about Abysmal? Horrible? Incompetent? Recall-able?

I wonder if this poll has hit Plunderblund.com or perhaps the Vindy's left wing hire Kovac.

I'd rate him between good and excellent. He has done more for job growth than the last two governors that is for damn sure, but he went too far with SB5. Give him a few more years and Ohio will be booming!

Valleyred, are you dipping into dimebag's dimebag? WHAT new jobs? WHAT new growth? Don't even try to say he had anything to do with V&M Star (the largest addition of new manufacturing jobs in the country). When that deal was being made, he was still bilking Lehman Bros. clients.

Kasich has taken partisan politics to new heights, and has increased the tax burden on local municipalities. He's filled the pockets of a few cronies with taxpayer money. He wants to give away the Turnpike in a get-rich-quick scheme that a fool can see will damage the state's economy.

Go back a year and click every jobs link on his twitter page:

NoBS, I don't want to hear your partisan nonsense. I, a conservative, actually supported Strickland in 2006 vs. Blackwell. After two-and-a-half years as our Governor, I knew Strickland was simply not getting the job done. I supported Kasich because he was going to make the necessary changes to make Ohio more-business friendly. I know those three works make Democrats cringe, but those three words CREATE JOBS.

Keep is up Governor Kasich!

you just don't get it....the municipalities are wasting money as much as the feds. how many times have you seen these county/city workers standing around doing absolutely ...nothing or doing it at a very slow pace. it has to start here. have some damn pride and do the work you're paid to do. there's so much waste going on everywhere. our money is being thrown away. kasich IS bringing in jobs AND eliminating the wasteful ones. he's trying to make the local gov'ts accountable for their monies. we need a total re-structure...not easy but necessary and will be beneficial in the long run...things MUST change....and he's making it happen...

Let me clue you in, valleyred. I have been a registered Republican for a lot of years - ever since I was 18. I considered myself a Republican until Kasich took office. If he's representative of the Republican party, I don't want to be one any more. That's not to say I'm ready to join Hagan, Gerberry, et al. I'm firmly in the middle of the road, and I see both sides.

What I see from Kasich is cronyism and polarizing politics born of his arrogance. "If you don't get on the bus, I'm going to run you over with the bus!" Yeah, way to get that bipartisan fellowship going!

Even the Kasich fans who are realistic enough to admit he overstepped "just a little" (ya think?) with his incredibly divisive SB 5, and admit it went too far, fail to carry that thought to completion, because they're afraid of where that will lead them. SB 5 was only part of how Kasich drove a wedge between his cronies and pets, and Middle Class Ohio. Yes, the public workers fended that punitive cheap shot off, but Kasich's damage is still being done to Ohio. The other significant part is his budget - when SB 5 was firmly and rightfully defeated, Ohioans should have demanded a new budget returning more tax money to the Ohioans who pay into the state's coffers. As things now stand, Kasich is taking his toys and going home, and screw the rest of Ohio. We won't put up with his SB 5 nonsense, so now we're being punished with his budget shoveling more of our money to Columbus (and his cronies) and less to pave and plow our streets, fund our safety services, keep our infrastructure in good condition, and so on. Without those things, what new businesses will relocate here?

Think maybe the Vindy should go back to the one vote per day per person
17058 total votes is as stupid as some of the comments

the liberal wack jobs would say any republican job performance would be poor. but they can't tell you what the democrats have done in the last 30 yrs to make the youngstown area better. youngstown will never improve if we keep electing the fools that have been running the area for years.

people love to talk out of both sides of their mouths on this site. just the other day, we had an article on the improved jobless rate and a bunch of people screaming bloody murder that nothing has improved.

now all of a sudden kasich is a godsend because of all the "job growth" as valleyred puts it. can't have it both ways, people.
