A second independent poll shows Kasich ahead in gubernatorial race
Gender gap, though, is especially wide
by WKSU's STATEHOUSE CORRESPONDENT BILL COHEN


Reporter
Bill Cohen
 
In The Region:
Another independent statewide poll says Ohio’s Republican governor, John Kasich, is pretty popular these days as he gears up for a re-election bid next year. The poll also shows Kasich ahead of two possible Democratic challengers. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports.
Cohen says Quinnipiac poll puts Kasich ahead of competition

This latest poll by Quinnipiac University mirrors the results of its poll from two months ago. By a margin of 52 percent to 34 percent, Ohio voters say they approve of the job Kasich is doing. And when he's matched head-to-head against Democrats, he beats them.

Kasich's edge over Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald is 46 to 37. His margin over Rich Cordray, the former Ohio attorney general and now head of the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, is 45 to 38.

A gender gap is nothing new in politics. Women lean toward Democrats, men toward Republicans

But this Quinnipiac poll shows an especially strong gender gap. In this poll, men favor Kasich over Cordray by 18 points, but women favor Cordray over Kasich by 4. Still, overall this poll confirms a huge turnaround in the way Ohioans view the incumbent governor. Two years ago, Kasich had a rock bottom approval rating of 30 percent. Now he's at 52 percent.
