In The Region:

About two years ago, Gov. John Kasich’s approval rating was below 40 percent. But the latest Quinnipiac University poll shows 52 percent of Ohio voters think he’s doing a good job now, while just 32 percent disapprove.

Pollster Peter Brown says there’s one reason for the governor’s higher approval rating -- the economy.

“You know it’s a chiche but it’s true. Incumbents prosper when times are good. Voters here think times are good and they think they are getting better.”

But Matt McGrath with the Ohio Democratic Party doesn’t put much stock in Kasich’s new poll numbers.

“If polls this far out mattered at all, we’d probably still be working for Gov. Ted Strickland.”

McGrath says Ohioans are not paying close attention to politics right now but when they do, they will not like the changes being made in the two-year budget GOP lawmakers are passing this week.
