I would like to know what he would run on. What's his platform anyway?
"Friends, I want to be your governor again. I promise to bring this state back into debt, and nothing like that 8 billion I left your current Governor with, I'm talking 12 or 15 billion. I promise more people leaving Ohio. I promise a higher unemployment rate than the national average. I promise much less jobs in Ohio--the same way it was before I left office. If you want Ohio to go back to the good ole days, elect me, Ted Strickland."
Yep. And I bet he would get every Democrat vote here in Ohio.
Truth! Something foreign to GOP.

I didn't speculate upon whether Strickland would run, and whether he will or not is really irrelevant to the issue here.
The point is, Ohioans are not enamored with the Governor.
Also, the numbers you cite are incorrect:

Only the first number is incorrect, the actual number was 42/35. The rest are correct.

There was an 8 billion dollar deficit and a near empty rainy day fund.

We were going to sink a pile of money onto a train that was slower than driving.

(Two states are still building the train, California and Illinois, are these paragons of fiscal virtue?)

Almost.

From Quinnipiac:

"Ohio Gov. John Kasich has a 42 - 35 percent job approval, the first time since his inauguration in 2011 that registered voters have given him a thumbs-up rating, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Gov. Kasich seems to be benefitting from high levels of satisfaction among Ohio voters with life in the Buckeye State.

But the governor does not deserve a second term, voters tell the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll by an almost identical 43 - 36 percent margin. All voters say 44 - 37 percent that another Republican should challenge the governor for the 2014 nomination. By 45 - 41 percent, self-described Republicans say no other Republican should challenge Kasich.

By a 40 - 34 percent margin, Ohio voters have a favorable opinion of Kasich, while 24 percent haven't heard enough about him to form an opinion. Former Gov. Ted Strickland gets a 41 - 29 percent favorability, with 29 percent who haven't heard enough. "

Damn the people are stupid, nearly a third don't seem to know who Strickland is.

The primary challenger question is useless without suggesting an opponent.

It also doesn't poll for a potential D primary.

Regardless of opinions, the poll is badly done. Q-Pac is obsolete.

It's amazing how people choose failure because failure is a member of their party. This is what's wrong with our country.

If there were a Democrat Governor running things today, I would reelect him or her because of results and not loyalty. I voted against Bob Taft for second term. Why? Because Taft was a failure and anybody besides him would have been an improvement. Turns out I was right.

When we look at the last presidential election, we see people reelected failure. Why?

We are a more divided country than ever before in our history. If we continue down this road, it will lead to our demise. Party first-country second is now the new theme in America.

Yeah, one of the top opinion polling institutes in the free world is obsolete, and they don't know what they're doing.

Sure thing.

PPP does a better job. If you are asking questions as to whether or not Kasich should be challenged in the R primary, you should mention a potential challenger. Jenny Rick is not a candidate on the ballot.

Taft's 2002 opponent was an idiot. Remember that this was before the corruption.

If you know Cuyahoga you'd know that Tim Hagan was in on the corruption as well, and IMO was worse than Taft, because Taft took bribes, he didn't directly steal anything, it was his cronies. The Ameritrust building and the medical mart have set Hagan up with a Swiss bank account no doubt. There is no way that he didn't know about Dimora and Russo.

To most Obama has not failed because the alternative was that "doing nothing" meant a depression. It isn't a clear description of what an alternative "all cuts" would have looked like, but "all cuts" was not actually promoted by the GOP, it also proved unpopular in Europe, though some think it worked in the Baltics.

When Internal Polls Mislead, a Whole Campaign May Be to Blame
By NATE SILVER
The problems with internal polls may run deeper than the tendency for campaigns to report them to the public in a selective way. The campaigns may also be fooling themselves.

States where President Obama beat the polls (Oregon, for example) tended to border others in which he also did so. The same was true for Mitt Romney. Mr. Obama also beat the polls in states hit by Hurricane Sandy — especially New Jersey.

By NATE SILVER
Although 17 seats is not an extraordinary number, both historical precedent in midterm election years and a deeper examination of this year’s results would argue strongly against Democrats being able to gain that many seats.
