In The Region:

A new Quinnipiac Poll shows Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald is gaining support in Ohio. But as Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports, this poll also has some good news for Republican Gov. John Kasich, too.

Quinnipiac Poll Director Peter Brown says Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald now trails Gov. Kasich by just 5 points.

“The last time Quinnipiac surveyed back in November, it was a 7-point lead.” 

Kasich’s approval rating now stands at 51 percent - down a point from November, but statistically insignificant number. And Brown says one stat about FitzGerald could be a positive sign for Kasich.

“Seven-in-10 voters don’t know enough about Mr. FitzGerald to have an opinion of him.”

Brown says there’s another factor to consider.  Gob. Kasich’s campaign war chest is about five times bigger than FitzGerald’s. Brown says that means Kasich will have more money to get his message out to voters.
