Ohio Governor Up for Grabs

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Ohio shows a toss up race for governor, with Ed FitzGerald (D) holding a slight lead over John Kasich (R), 38% to 35%.

Key findings: "The closeness of the race is more of a reflection on Kasich than FitzGerald. He has a negative approval rating with 42% of voters approving of him to 47% who disapprove. That represents a 10 point net decline from our last Ohio poll in November when he was at 45/40. FitzGerald meanwhile remains unknown to most voters in the state with 62% not having an opinion about him one way or the other- among those who do have one 20% see him positively and 18% in a negative light."
