John Kasich's Approval Rating at 38%; 54% of Ohioans Want Senate Bill 5 Repealed

Quinnipiac University conducted new polling today and the news is all bad for John Kasich. Only 38% of Ohioans approve of Kasich as Governor. 49 percent of voters disapprove of his work in office.

There is good news for union supporters in the state of Ohio coming from the 1,379 registered voters who answered the questionnaire with a 2.6 percent margin of error. If the referendum to repeal Senate Bill 5, which would restrict collective bargaining in the state, were to be held today the measure would pass 54% say they would vote for the law to be overturned. Only 36% people polled say they want to keep the law in place.

“Although it is a long way until November when opponents of SB 5 hope to ask voters to overturn it, at this point there is strong support for repealing Gov. Kasich’s signature plan,” Peter Brown of Quinnipiac said in a press release. “Not only does he need to rebuild his image, but the governor will need to move a lot of voters over the next six months if he wants his plan to survive.”
