Kasich Disapproval Increasing

A new Quinnipiac Poll has some very interesting numbers on the upcoming Ohio election and voter ratings of Gov. John Kasich. Here are some highlights from the Quinnipiac Poll:

10. Do you approve or disapprove of the way John Kasich is handling his job as Governor?

                                                               UNION HSHLD
                     Tot    Rep    Dem    Ind    Men    Wom    Yes    No

Approve              36%    71%    14%    30%    41%    31%    23%    40%
Disapprove           52     23     75     54     50     54     67     47
DK/NA                12      7     10     16     10     15     10     13
...18. As you may know there is a proposed referendum to repeal this new law.  Do 
you think this new law which limits collective bargaining for public employees 
should be kept or repealed?

                                                               UNION HSHLD
                     Tot    Rep    Dem    Ind    Men    Wom    Yes    No

Kept                 32%    59%    13%    32%    38%    27%    24%    35%
Repealed             57     32     77     56     54     58     70     52
DK/NA                11      9      9     12      7     15      7     13
19. Do you think limiting collective bargaining for public employees is necessary 
to help balance the state budget or not?

                                                               UNION HSHLD
                     Tot    Rep    Dem    Ind    Men    Wom    Yes    No

Yes                  34%    59%    18%    31%    38%    30%    21%    38%
No                   57     32     75     59     56     58     73     52
DK/NA                 9      9      7     10      6     13      6     11

My view:   Let me point out something very important in these questions and how women responded.  In questions #10, #18, and #19, women voters voiced their opposition to Kasich and SB 5 in higher numbers than male voters. As a woman myself and in my conversations with other women, I can honestly say that women do not like the bullying, disrespect, and arrogance that Gov. Kasich has displayed in his dealings with people. Several women said that they couldn't stand hearing his voice. Another factor could be Kasich's budget which had major cuts to public education and nursing homes, issues that are very important to women.

* I'll be skipping this event. >>>  Mr. Mitt "Corporations are people" Romney is going to be in Cincinnati. Romney recently suggested that banks should speed up foreclosures (see RawStory).  Doesn't it figure that Romney, who sold off companies, fired American workers, and outsourced jobs, would find a friend in Kasich, a former Vice President at Lehman Brothers?


An overwhelming majority of Ohio voters favor repealing a new anti-union law backed by Gov. John Kasich and opposition to the measure has increased sharply in the last month, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

The survey comes as Mitt Romney is set to travel to Cincinnati on Tuesday to support upholding the law in a key 2012 battleground state....

It really doesn't matter which Republican personality Kasich brings to Ohio because it is very clear that Ohio's voters are sick of the Republican agenda. We need to vote out all those that supported SB 5 and vote out Kasich.

Vote NO on Issue 2.
