Two weeks before the November 8 election, Ohio voters seem poised to stomp the aggressive collective-bargaining-curbing law, Senate Bill 5, that has unified public employee union members with nearly every other demographic in the state, according to a pollreleased by Quinnipiac University on Oct. 25.
The poll shows voters oppose the measure by a 25-point margin, 57 to 32 percent.
The poll also indicates that the bill’s opponents are growing; in August, that margin was 13 points.
For the state’s governor, John Kasich, the numbers are especially disheartening. The controversial law, which would also ban public employees from striking and end binding arbitration, represents the cornerstone of the former Lehman Bros. executive’s first-term administration.
Kasich’s own approval rating seems inextricably linked to SB5 at this time; while 71 percent of Republicans approve of the job he is doing, 56 percent of the state
disapprove.
Quinnipiac used live interviewers who called both landlines and cell phones. For this poll, 1,668 registered voters were polled between Oct. 17 and Oct. 23; the
margin of error for the sample is plus-or-minus 2.4 percent.
