Special election candidates Troy Balderson (R-Zanesville), a state Senator, and Danny O’Connor (D), the Franklin County Recorder, continue moving forward to their August 7th decision day. JMC Analytics just released their latest poll (6/13-16; 500 OH-12 likely special election voters who completed the ten-question survey) and found Sen. Balderson leading Mr. O’Connor, 46-35%. This tracks with the previously released Monmouth University poll (6/7-10; 501 OH-12 likely special election voters) that found Sen. Balderson holding a 43-33% district-wide advantage.
Sen. Balderson’s favorability index is 29:21% positive to negative. Mr. O’Connor’s is a similar 24:13%. This contrasts with President Trump’s 54:40% job approval rating and Gov. John Kasich’s (R) 43:36%.
