Obama, Kasich Approval Rises Among Ohio Voters

New poll results indicate Ohioans are in a slightly better mood toward their leaders as the economy improves. Governor John Kasich saw his approval rating among Ohioans rise to 44 percent from 42 percent in the latest University of Cincinnati Ohio Poll, released Friday. It is the first time since Kasich took office that the poll found more Ohioans approve than disapprove of his performance. President Barack Obama also saw a bump in his approval rating, to 47 percent from 43 percent in July. But about half of Ohioans disapprove of the overall job Obama is doing. Ohio's presidential primary is Tuesday.
