Survey reveals voters don't know much about Ed FitzGerald, but he's closing the gap with Kasich
The latest Quinnipiac poll shows seven-in-10 voters don't know enough about the Democratic gubernatorial candidate to form an opinion

In The Region:
The race for governor next year is tightening up in the latest Quinnipiac poll. The survey shows incumbent Republican John Kasich leading Democratic challenger Ed FitzGerald 44-37 percent. But that lead is half of the 14 point advantage Kasich had in the Quinnipiac poll in June.

Pollster Peter Brown says one of the biggest problems for FitzGerald right now is that 71 percent of voters surveyed don’t know enough about him to form an opinion.

"He will have to spend an inordinate amount of time introducing himself to voters before he can tell them what he wants to do. And that conversation will obviously be an expensive one since it will involve lots of television."

Brown says that could be an opening for Kasich, who can try to define FitzGerald in his way to voters before FitzGerald can fully introduce himself. But the poll also shows 39 percent of voters don’t feel Kasich deserves to be re-elected, so Brown says Kasich will have to deal with that as well.
