This poll is part of a continuing collaboration between Ohio’s eight largest newspapers — the Dayton Daily News, The (Cleveland) Plan Dealer, Cincinnati Enquirer, Columbus Dispatch, Akron Beacon Journal, The (Toledo) Blade, Canton Repository, and The (Youngstown) Vindicator. The newspapers have been working together for several years to report on issues important to Ohioans. Elsewhere on these pages is another collaboration between the newspapers — a story examining the millions of dollars being spent on television advertising in the final weeks of the campaign.
The poll was conducted by the University of Cincinnati’s Institute for Policy Research. A random sample of 852 likely voters from throughout the state was interviewed by landline telephone and cellular telephone. In 95 of 100 cases, the statewide estimates will be accurate to plus or minus 3.4 percent.
A second poll will be published Oct. 24-25.
