A new Buckeye State survey just produced some surprising results. According to Fallon Research, polling for Ohio’s 1984 Society, Attorney General and former US Senator Mike DeWine (R) would open the general election with a major lead over former Consumer Protection Financial Bureau director and ex-Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray (D). Fallon projects, in a survey that looks to have a reasonable reliability factor, that DeWine holds a whopping 49-28% advantage over Cordray, a highly unexpected margin at this early juncture in the campaign cycle.
The Ohio Governor’s race has not been frequently polled as yet, but this result may serve as an impetus to conduct further surveys. We can expect the Democrats to soon counter with numbers showing Mr. Cordray in better position vis-à-vis Mr. DeWine. In 2010, former Sen. DeWine ousted then-Attorney General Cordray, 47.5 -46.3%.
