Gov. John Kasich has a good approval rating with one political party in Ohio, just not his own.
A new Quinnipiac University poll reports that that Gov. John Kasich has a 52 percent job approval rating overall and he’s more popular among Democrats than his fellow Republicans who are evenly divided over the governor.
Fifty-seven percent of Democrats give Kasich the thumbs up and 52 percent of them would like to see Kasich make another run for president in 2020.
Meanwhile, nearly three in four Republicans say they don’t want him to run for president in 2020.
Kasich was the last Republican candidate to drop out of the race against Donald Trump in the Republican primary in 2016.
Rumors have swirled since that Kasich may run again as a Republican in 2020. Kasich says he is unlikely to challenge President Trump as an independent, but hasn’t ruled it out.
It’s unlikely, but when you have options on the table, all options are on the table, right?” Kasich said in an interview with CNN.
The Quinnipiac poll was conducted June 7 to June 12, contacted 1,082 Ohio voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
