That's good news,but the election is a long ways off. Obama and Brown have demonstrated they can lead, look after the middle class, and improve health, safety, and environment. Don't get me wrong, they have their flaws (BP oil spill, caving to Republicans, etc.), but they are head and shoulders of anyone the repubs have to offer.

"Obama and Brown have demonstrated they can lead....."

Thanks, I needed that. You make me laugh. Spitting scrambled eggs is messy.

Obama a leader. That's like saying Charlie Brown is a Cy Young Award winning pitcher. Hilarious.

I'm going to mark your post as funny. Thanks again.

What COULD voters be thinking???

(Maybe they're thinking that these guys are doing a pretty darn good job, given the circumstances they were given to deal with..........

What isn't said in the Dispatch article (likely because the poll didn't ask this) is how many Ohio voters fall in the category that I do - I don't like either Obama or Brown, but I'm so fed up with the Republican party right now (thanks to John Kasich and others in Ohio, and Scott Walker in Wisconsin) that I won't be voting for any of them for a long, long time for fear that they turn out to be like Kasich. The man is a disaster for Ohio, and for the GOP.

Unfortunately, other GOP leaders like Niehaus and Batchelder that have enabled Kasich to attack our police officers, teachers, fire fighters, nurses, school bus drivers, and all other public workers that they've virtually guaranteed that Ohio will be in the Obama column in 2012.

Somebody in the GOP should have stood up to Kasich and said "No! We can balance this budget (as required by Ohio law, and as done by Strickland, Taft, Voinovich, Celeste, and every other governor before them) without attacking our fellow Ohioans. We can balance this budget without using so much one-time money (sales of prisons, leasing the interstate, selling liquor rights, etc.), because in 2 years we'll be in the same predicament if we use one-time money. We can balance this budget if we refuse to cater to the special interests of the wealthiest Ohioans, and do what's right for the average, middle-class Ohioan."

But instead, house Republican leader William Batchelder let millionaire charter schools operater David Brennan write his own funding into the Ohio budget.

Instead, senate Republican leader Tom Niehaus removed two of his Republican colleagues, who were elected to represent their districts, from key senate committees in order to get enough votes for SB 5 to pass out of committees.

Instead, Republican politicians like Jimmy Stewart and Karen Gilmor voted against the will of their constituents, and in favor of SB 5, in exchange for promises of unelected political appointments from Kasich.

The Ohio GOP is a disaster right now, and only getting worse. Why is Robert Mecklenborg being allowed to remain in office through early August, other than to collect his July paycheck? He should have been gone in June! Why is Kris Jordan still in office? I live in his district, and we don't want a wife-abuser representing us! Why the silence from Kasich and Niehaus on this matter?

Until Kasich came in office, I was an independent who almost always voted Republican. Now I'm an independent who may never vote for another Republican.

Given their history can we really believe the Quinnipiac Poll? Give a bunch of college kids a phone and a Lib professor to direct them and this is what you get.
The Dispatch is really on a mission to make the Republicans think they don't need bother voting in the next election. Wonder what the Dems are doing for them? Could it be like an exclusive interview with Obumer for their TV station?

I hope the libs continue to believe this [email protected] Quinnipiac polls are notorioously unreliable and way left leaning, almost comically so. The more they believe this tripe heading into next year, the better.....

Quinnipiac polls are notorious for having liberal bias.

I would like to see some real numbers, please.

The only thing Republicans are good for is rewarding their campaign contributors.

Only misery trickled down from their last economic plan. Republicans threw the economy off a cliff in 2008 and now criticize Obama for not stopping the destruction they caused fast enough. Republican economic plans are not about what's best for America, but rather what is best for their campaign contributors.

The last time they controlled Congress and the White House Republcians started two expensive wars and refused to raise taxes to pay for them. Dick Cheney repeatedly said, "Deficits don't matter."

Now they want to cut military pay, pension and medical benefits. This group just loves to spit on our soldiers. They sent them off to war, refused to provided adequate armor, dumped them in mold-infested "hospitals," and are now trying to cut the care our wounded soldiers receive because caring for them would raise taxes.

That's just disgusting

What a crock! How could BO lead ANY challenger! Just look at this country! Things have gone from bad to worse with this scoundrel in the White House and his recent legislative "successes" promise to take us absolutely into history's sh-tter. I could throw a dart at an open phone book and select a far superior candidate to lead this nation.

You need political science 050 buddy if you think that Obama is even remotely clost to "socialist/marxist" and some kind of diversity training if you think he's muslim. Racism died in this country decades ago, moron.

I think that Tim was being sarcastic, but I'm not sure.

But yes, it makes no sense to call Obama a socialist. Even the "evil government takeover of health care" has no public option and is going to be a huge gift to private insurance companies. Much to my dismay by the way. And he extended the Bush tax cuts. And he temporarily lowered the soc sec tax. Some socialist...
