Ohio Poll: Strickland, Brown lead

This news is really more like a broken record, but more importantly than that, it's the last straw for Kenny's campaign, 'cause this is as conservative (in the cautious sense) in the polling world as it gets. Except for pity money from Mr. White Hat, the governor's race is over. And DeWine's got no traction.

From the University of Cincinnat's Institute for Policy Research:

The first Ohio Poll of likely voters in 2006 finds U.S. Rep. Ted Strickland (D) leads
Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell (R) by 12 percentage points in the race for governor. U.S. Rep. Sherrod Brown (D) leads U.S. Senator Mike DeWine (R) by four percentage points in the race for U.S. Senate.

. . .

The Poll was conducted from September 7 through September 17, 2006.

. . .

At the present time, fewer Democrats than Republicans express intent to vote for their rival party’s candidate. While 20 percent of Republicans say they will vote for Democrat Ted Strickland, just eight percent of Democrats intend to vote for Republican Ken Blackwell.

. . .

While 20 percent of Republicans say they will vote for Democrat
Sherrod Brown, 14 percent of Democrats intend to vote for Republican Mike DeWine.

. . .


Far more likely voters see things in Ohio as “off on the wrong track” (69%) than see things in Ohio as “heading in the right direction” (27%).

Among likely voters who see Ohio as “off on the wrong track,” Strickland leads Blackwell, 59 to 29 percent. Brown leads DeWine, 61 to 37 percent among likely voters in this group.

Similarly, far more likely voters see things in the country as “off on the wrong track” (61%) than see things as “heading in the right direction” (35%).

Among likely voters who see the country as “off on the wrong track,” Strickland leads Blackwell, 69 to 17 percent. Brown leads DeWine, 69 to 29 percent among likely voters in this group.
Honestly, we do hope Kenny has enough money to run a few more "Taxin' Ted" ads to help Strickland run his numbers a bit higher.
