The fight is not over yet, but Public Policy Polling’s final poll before tomorrow’s election show’s Issue 2 headed for a huge defeat.

PPP shows that 59% of Ohioan’s plan to reject SB5 and only 36% plan to vote to keep it. This is up three points from October’s 56%-36% margin and 12 points from August’s 50% to 39% margin.

The poll shows 30% of Republicans and 54% of Independents are planning to vote No.

Polling for Issue 3 shows the “No” side improving, with the Yes votes lead narrowed to a 14 point margin. And with 16% of voters still undecided on the Issue, it’s definitely too early to call this fight over just yet.

As PPP mentions, SB5/Issue 2 is now polling the same as it was back in the spring, when anger over its passage was at its peak. Back then we all wondered if we would be able to keep up the momentum until November. I think we have our answer.

But we don’t just want to defeat Issue 2. We want it to go down in a huge, burning, screaming ball of flames. We want to show Kasich, Ohio’s legislative leaders, and the whole country that we will not lie down and accept this union-busting, anti-worker agenda.

You DO NOT want to miss out on the opportunity to be part of history here, folks! Get out and vote tomorrow!

    Great news, but everybody still needs to actually vote. I hope it goes down big time!

    Just image if Kasich wouldn’t have insulted everyone from the start and, instead, followed the example of Gene Harris who refused a raise in her second year by saying: In view of the extreme economic hardship in Ohio, I’m going to forego my first year’s salary in hopes that others both in the public and private sectors will make significant sacrifices for the good of our state. I’ll work with any and all groups to achieve fair and equitable solutions to our economic problems. For a millionaire this wouldn’t  have been a big sacrifice but would have been a HUGE gain in respect, credibility and political capital. He would have been an  unbeatable hero. But he chose the low road and now he’s weak and toxic even to those in his own party. I don’t see him learning ANYTHING from this.

  • After SB5 goes down we need to make sure that any other repub gov. that tries this sh@% gets it shoved back at him too. I’m just afraid as a teacher and public employee we have more battles to fight before this one term gov. is gone and out of here.

  • And most workers do not remember this. I mean it happened 1 year after I was born. I know I didn’t know about it.

  • Some people can not overcome there upbringing.

  • Yep my family also contributed 5 no votes if you add my parents that would be 7.
