This new poll about Ohio's 2018 election should worry Republicans

Source: Cincinnati Enquirer

COLUMBUS - Even in a strong year for Democrats, Republicans assumed they could count on the Ohio governor's race.

Maybe not.

A new Enquirer / Suffolk University poll – the first statewide, independent poll since the Ohio primary – showed Democrat Richard Cordray leading Republican Mike DeWine in the governor's race, 43 percent to 36 percent among likely voters.

1. There are several governorships that the GOP is really sweating about right now.

Ohio, Wisconsin and Florida are three of them. Trump woke up a sleeping monster.

3. Even here in Michigan, I've found DeWine to be one of the more craven

career politicians today's Republican Party has to offer.

And that's saying something, given that I live in the state that Bill Schuette wants to govern.

15. Trust me

You will find people in Ohio that have disliked DeWine for a long time. That is why we have Sherrod Brown who cast the deciding vote for the ACA after flying back to DC from his Mothers funeral.

DeWine came in on Kasich’s coat tails because people blamed Strickland for the Bush recession. Ohio was hurting then. Kasich only won by 2%. Acted as if he won by a landslide. Tried to kill Public Unions. We handed him his head with 1.3 million signatures, then defeated him soundly at the Ballot box.

Then he went underground undermining Education.

DeWine is a political hack of the worst kind hiding behind his RELIGION.

5. Talk About a Career Politician!

DeWine has spent his whole life milking political office in our state, and really needs to be retired. His only accomplishment, if that could be considered one, is to breed almost w/o limit--he has EIGHT kids! He is Trump's age, and has lost about as many steps. Go Richard!

9. Be careful, Ohio Democrats.

The voter purge has been given the go-ahead in your state. Make sure everyone is registered. Check your registrations. Re-register. Have plenty of voter ID. They could cheat you out of your elections.

19. We voted for a Committee to over see Redistricting in May.

Republicans actually backed it because they were afraid Democrats would be in charge.

Won that overwhelmingly,too.

Husted is the worst. This is the only lawsuit he won and that is because of the Republican Supreme Court!

10. Register register register voters.

We shouldn't have to register voters - registration is just a tool of voter suppression. Like paying taxes, we should be automatically registered to vote.

But since registration exists, we better ramp it up, because the GOP is trying like hell to suppress votes in Ohio.

"GOP(tm) - We gotta cheat to win, because our policies only help billionaires."

21. It would be mighty nice to have a Dem in the governor's mansion there,

especially when the next census is taken. There always seem to be complications - some of them rather suspicious (talkin' to YOU, Kenneth Blackwell!). It'd be great to have a Democratic governor overseeing all that, this time.

You've GOTTA have Dems win the tens. The "zero years" - 2020, 2030, 2040, 2050, etc. The CENSUS is taken every ten years. If a Democrat is in charge at the statehouse when the census is taken, its results determine reapportionment of Congressional districts. As we've seen again and again and again, if the GOP controls the governor's chair, there WILL be gerrymandering of districts to benefit the CONS. They will do everything they can to rig the game in their favor, in the ways they re-draw the districts to conform to changes in population numbers. We've SEEN this. And while there are challenges being filed, and court cases being won, those thing take time.
