Governor Kasich reached his highest approval rating ever among Ohioans since being elected governor according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University. The poll, conducted using live telephone interviews among 1,011 registered voters from February 21-26, found the governor has broken the 50 percent threshold of approval, with 53 percent of voters saying he is doing a good job versus 32 percent who disapprove. That is nearly the opposite of what voters said about him near the 2011 election, when they overwhelmingly overturned the Senate Bill 5 collective bargaining reform bill in a referendum. It is also up from the 42 percent approval and 35 percent disapproval rating in a December Quinnipiac Poll, which was the first time Governor Kasich had a positive score among voters. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
