A new poll finds more than half of Ohio voters surveyed don’t like the way President Obama is doing his job. But the same poll also finds he’d win by a slim margin over his Republican opponents if the election were held today. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports.
The Quinnipiac University poll shows 53% of Ohioans disapprove of the way President Obama is doing his job. And 51% say he doesn’t deserve to be re-elected. But the poll also shows voters don’t like the Republicans who are in the field either. In a head to head matchup, the survey shows President Obama would beat Texas Governor Rick Perry by three points and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney by two points. That’s so close that this pollster considers it too close to call. The Quinnipiac poll shows Romney and Perry are running right. Perry would win by a small margin when the entire field is considered. But aside from those two candidates, none of the other Republicans currently running in the Presidential primary scored above nine percent.
