Apparently, PPP had a few more nuggets in their polling they decided to dump out today:
- Sherrod Brown’s approval is on the rise (although PPP has it substantially lower than Quinnipiac showed it) with an eleven point swing in his favor since March and leads against a generic Republican for 2012. PPP attributes this to Brown improving his standing with independents.
- Mike DeWine has a slight lead of 44% to 41% in the AG’s race. However, voters are almost equally divided between having a favorable, unfavorable, and not knowing enough to form an opinion over DeWine. (This is the first non-campaign poll in the race released. In February, Mike DeWine’s campaign claimed to have an unlikely eighteen point lead. The poll was done by Public Opinion Strategies…. yes, it was a P.O.S. poll)
- There is no statistically significant advantage between the parties in the Ohio generic congressional ballot. The Republicans do better with independents, but, again, where’s the tide?
- While Ohioans have a net negative twenty-five disapproval rating (33-58)with Ohioans, Republicans have an even larger FOURTY-FOUR point net disapproval rating (20-64). Ohioans hate John Boehner and don’t want him to be the next Speaker.
Why is anyone polling for 2012 now, though?
