Quinnipiac University released its latest poll of registered Ohio voters today. Respondents were asked about the Governor’s handling of the state budget and the majority disapproved. Similarly large majorities prefer a different approach to the budget than the GOP has pursued, but don’t expect that to change.

Today saw the release of a new Quinnipiac University poll of Ohio voters. In addition to questions about the Governor’s approval ratings (30% approve, 46% disapprove), several questions focused on attitudes about proposals contained in the Governor’s budget. Bottom line: Ohioans are a strangely fatalistic bunch when it comes to state budgets and the inevitability of increased taxes. They believe the budget situation is bad and, with few exceptions, dislike Kasich’s ideas for solving it.

A new Ohio poll was released today, showing that Governor Kasich has a 40% approval rating and 47% disapproval. But the more interesting finding was that, when asked about their preferred approach to balancing the state budget, a majority – 53% – indicated they would like to see a balanced approach combining spending cuts and tax increases to one that uses only tax increases or cuts alone.
