Q Poll: Strong Support for Repeal of SB 5 in Ohio

Republican Gov. John Kasich signed the bill into law in March, claiming it was necessary to address budget problems in the state. But We Are Ohio, the group that organized the opposition to SB 5, turned in nearly 1.3 million signatures to the secretary of state in June, landing the issue on the November 8 ballot. Kasich, who has held rallies across the state in recent weeks urging voters to vote to uphold the law, saw his own approval numbers dip in the poll. Thirty-six percent of those surveyed said they approved of Kasich's handling of his job, while 52 percent said they disapproved. In a Quinnipiac poll a month ago, 40 percent approved of Kasich's job performance, while 49 percent disapproved. The poll of 1,668 registered voters was conducted from Oct. 17-23. It has a margin of error of +/- 2.4 percent. Steven Shepard contributed.
