Poll: POTUS Remains Unpopular, Clinton Would Win Ohio
A new Quinnipiac University poll shows President Obama's approval rating among Ohio voters remains near an all-time low. Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports.
The latest Quinnipiac University poll shows only 36% of registered Ohio voters surveyed approve of the way President Obama is doing his job. 59% of those who responded say they disapprove of Obama's job performance. And that's close to his all-time low score in any of the nine states surveyed by Quinnipiac University. Democrats overwhelmingly approve of Obamas performance and Republicans nearly unanimously disapprove. But by a 2-1 margin, independents surveyed say they disapprove of the way the President is running the country. But it's not all bad news for Democrats as 52% of Ohioans surveyed say they would support Democrat Hillary Clinton if she ran for president over the other possible Republican candidates
, even incumbent Ohio Governor John Kasich. Hes been mentioned by some pundits as a possible presidential contender but this poll shows Clinton would beat Kasich in a head to head matchup in Ohio right now by a 47 to 40 percent margin.
