Gov. Ted Strickland has a 60%-25% approval rating among Ohio voters, up from 55%-23% on June 4, according to a new poll released today by Quinnipiac University. Republicans give the Democratic Governor a 47%-35% job approval, while he’s at 57%-27% among independents.
“With a little more than two years to go in his first term, Gov. Strickland would have to be considered a strong candidate for re-election,” said Peter Brown, the Assistant Director of the Quinnipiac’s polling institute. “By a 47 – 31 percent margin, voters think Gov. Strickland has kept his 2006 campaign promises, 40 – 33 percent among independents.”
