But the most surprising part of the evening wasn’t political; it was Kasich’s presentation of the three Cleveland women who were held captive for over a decade by Ariel Castro.

A new poll finds that Ohioans are closely divided when it comes to gay marriage. A Quinnipiac  University poll released Monday shows that 50 percent of Ohio voters support gay marriage while 44 percent are against it.

The survey also finds that Ohio voters under age 30 overwhelmingly back the idea while those 65 and older opposed it.

Gay marriage supporters are working to put the issue back on the Ohio ballot in November. There also have been recent lawsuits aimed at seeking the recognition of gay marriage in Ohio.
