Poll shows Governor Kasich still ahead of Democratic challenger

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A new poll shows that Democratic challenger Ed FitzGerald has gained little ground against Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

The poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University in Connecticut shows Republican Kasich ahead of FitzGerald 48 percent to 36 percent.

The same poll in May had Kasich leading by a 50-to-35 percent margin.

The July 24-28 survey notes that many Ohioans still don't know much about FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga County executive. The survey said 65 percent of voters don't know enough about FitzGerald to form an opinion of him.

Fifty-five percent of Ohioans questioned approve of the job Kasich is doing. He was elected governor in 2010.

The survey of 1,366 Ohio voters has a margin-of-error of just under 3 percentage points.

The election is Nov. 4.
