OH-Gov: Strickland In Better Shape
Quinnipiac (9/8-10, likely voters, 6/26-7/1 in parentheses):

Ted Strickland (D-inc): 46 (43)
John Kasich (R): 36 (38)
(MoE: 3%)

There's some definite improvement in the Ohio Governor's race, where a number of summertime polls showed incumbent Dem Ted Strickland leading John Kasich within the margin error. Strickland's putting a little more distance between himself and the ex-Rep., now holding a 10-point edge.

Strickland's hardly out of the woods, polling below 50%. And although his overall job approval is positive at 48/42, he's in deep negative territory on his handling of the state budget and the economy (not that anyone could do much with that, given the demolished manufacturing sector at his state's core). Ohioans are a little happier with their Senators: George Voinovich is at 52/33 and Sherrod Brown is at 48/33.

1. good #'s I think. Kasich, although out of the limelight, is pretty respected in most areas of the
state. I think the Gov will be fine though, hard to unseat an incumbent without a disastrous mistake or stance. Senator Milquetoast is above 50%, lol... he's just so wishy-washy, but for a repub he's not horrible. And the Jr Senator, Brown, should be polling higher! That's BS that more Ohioans aren't happy with him fighting on their behalf every day.
