Ohio Gov. John Kasich's job approval is at an all-time high 53 - 32 percent, the first time in two years that he tops 50 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.



In an early look at the 2014 reelection race, Gov. Kasich holds 6-point to 10-point leads against each of the four potential contenders for the Democratic nomination to run against him:
45 - 35 percent over Cuyahoga County Executive Ed Fitzgerald;
44 - 38 percent over U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray;
44 - 36 percent over U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan;
45 - 38 percent over former U.S. Rep. Betty Sutton.




Great news!

I didn't think Kasich was going to be underwater for too long. The trend of his term as been consistently upward, so I think he gets re-elected fairly easily.

Those approval/disapproval numbers look a little out-of-whack, but Kasich is probably safe.

Well thee goes Ohio. But let's wait for more polls to cogito this. I doubt his approval would be close to +20.

Looks like his lead is about the same regardless of who his opponent is.

If he wins reelection, he's a likely VP shortlister for 2016, especially if the presidential nominee is Rubio, who probably wouldn't mind sharing the ticket with an over 60 year old Midwestern white guy, with experience both as a governor and in Congress.

Just as Democrats shouldn't call it a surefire pickup, Republicans shouldn't be calling this safe for them.  No matter what this is still well over a year out and alot can change between now and then, not to mention the strength of the unions and the union ideas of the state.

Wow, those results shock me.  How on earth did his job approval increase so much so quickly?  Thankfully, this is the first non-PPP poll I've seen for 2014, so I trust the results a bit more (though still not a whole lot, since Quinnipiac is rather biased toward Democrats as well).  But this is great news!

Of course he "could" be, but definitely won't.

It's been a good week for "goners" Scott and Kasich. Corbett? Not so much.

How so? Feingold is virtually tied with Walker.

Ok, well, I didn't mention it being good for Walker...

But, anyway, Walker is leading every other potential candidate and for "rock star" (one of the biggest myths in politics) Feingold to only be "virtually tied" with him, it's looking pretty good for that "goner," too.

They've been increasing for a while now. After the Senate Bill 5 fiasco, Kasich has changed his approach somewhat and has been governing pragmatically: the Medicare Expansion, the Cleveland Schools reform, even his budget was pretty moderate ideologically. Plus his jobs program as been fairly successful. He's by no means a lock to get re-elected but at this point he probably does have a good chance.

As somebody who lives in Cuyahoga County, I'd never even heard of Ed Fitzgerald until his name started being proposed for Governor. I don't follow local news much, but...still. More people have heard of Sutton than Fitzgerald.

Kasich isn't liked, though. He's not hated, but he certainly isn't liked. I'm quite surprised this poll shows him doing so well.
