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 Obama’s 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.  He’s 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.
