Okay, this poll made me LOL.
Public Policy Polling (PDF) (5/19-22, Ohio voters, 3/10-13 in parens):
Q: If you could do last fall’s election for Governor over again, would you vote for Democrat Ted Strickland or Republican John Kasich?
Ted Strickland (D): 59 (55)
John Kasich (R-inc): 34 (40)
Undecided: 7 (5)
This is buyer's remorse in the way that coming back from a weekend in Vegas with chlamydia is mere "buyer's remorse." I just hope that Ted Strickland, even though he'd be 73 by election day, gives some thought to coming back in 2014 and spanking the ever-loving bejesus out of John Kasich. Pretty please?
There's other good news in this poll as well: Voters support a repeal of Ohio's new anti-union legislation known as SB5 by a 55-35 margin. Furthermore, Democrats lead on the congressional generic ballot by a 43-34 spread. I'll note that for the second poll in a row, PPP shows a big D-R split in their sample (45-35 this time, 45-33 last time). It may just be that at, at least for the present moment, that's how the electoral cookie crumbles.
