Quinnipiac University pollster Peter Brown says there’s good news for Gov. Kasich in this most recent poll.

“You know, Kasich’s doing a better job in the eyes of voters.”

In this latest poll, Kasich’s job approval rating is 53 percent, and that’s the first time since he took office that it’s been over the 50 percent mark.

Brown suspects Ohioans feel good about the state’s economy and give credit to Kasich for that. The poll also shows Kasich, at this point, is leading some potential Democratic gubernatorial candidates.

But Chris Redfern with the Ohio Democratic party says don’t read too much into that.

“This time four years ago, when a poll was taken for Ted Strickland, it showed us thrashing John Kasich by almost 30 points in a head-to-head match up that was not yet to be held for another two years.”
