Poll: Ohioans souring on President Barack Obama

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A poll finds that President Barack Obama's job approval ratings are skidding among voters in Ohio, the swing state he carried twice.

The poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University indicates that 57% of voters disapproved of the way Obama is doing things as president, his lowest grade ever in Ohio.

The poll finds 40% approve of Obama's job performance, with independent voters moving away from the president.

The same poll earlier reported that Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich's approval ratings reached a new high.

The poll taken June 18-23 surveyed 941 Ohio voters for a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.2%age points.

The poll says a potential 2016 presidential match-up finds Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Chris Christie even at this point.
