Doesn't matter who runs! Ever since Kasich was elected, I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR ANOTHER REPUBLICAN.

Joe the garbageman could run, he/she would still be more qualified than any/all republican to represent the middle class.

Are you kidding? I can't remember the Dispatch endorsing a Democrat for President in my considerably-long lifetime. Face it, GOP overreaching and hostility towards working folks in Ohio have backfired and the polls reveal that. Kasich and his cronies are gifts to Obama, Brown, Mayor Coleman, and all other Democrats running this year, and probably long into the future. Thank you, John! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

That was within the margin of error. These numbers are way outside.

the 3 examples you offer: Obama, Brown, Coleman, are great examples of politicians that have; and continue to ruin this once great country.

All 3 way above their head in the job; and all 3 should be tarred and feathered

All 3 will be replaced in first election cycle they compete in.

Well, let's see. Who do they back? How about endorsing Bush for two terms (even though he had screwed the country big time and the courts handed him a victory in which he had LESS votes that Gore).

Uh, we're talking about the owners, the Wolfe family, being long time Repubicans.

Yeah, who do they back?

What you don't seem to understand that you've been SO screwed by the GOP that, yes, Obama, Brown, and the dems will all win.

The people are sick of it.

No. I'm unhappy with how the GOP has forgotten who they are. Obama can give them exactly what they wanted (even their own ideas) and they STILL won't govern.

GOP bad behavior=GOP thrown out.

And the average guy sees this.

Obviously, the people at the Dispatch are disappointed at the poll's results. Unfortunately, central Ohioans have been subjected to the Dispatch's right wing propaganda machine. While the paper acts like the public relations firm for the Kasich administration, we rarely see two sides of any issue.

The Republicans have moved to the extreme right. They've embraced the anti-Christian views of Ayn Rand, abandoned the safety net programs for our parents like Social Security and Medicare, and have decided that money is their god.

Josh Mandel, Kasich, Portman, Coughlin, and the GOP presidential candidates don't care about average working people. They all want to end Social Security, Medicare, public education, so that they can give more tax cuts to their wealthy overlords (the Koch brothers, Grover Norquist, and their ilk). They must stop their war on the middle class and work to help all Americans, not just those making millions and billions of dollars.

The poll tells me on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best), Ohio voters rate Obama a "4" but the republican challengers are all "3's" or less; so even though a "4" isn't very good, it beats the 3's. No strong choices, really.
