Ohioans' Support For Union Law Falls As Vote nears

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A new poll ahead of next month's election
finds growing opposition to an Ohio law limiting the bargaining
rights of 350,000 public sector workers.
A Quinnipiac (KWIHN'-uh-pee-ak) University Poll taken Oct. 17-23
found 57 percent of registered voters support repealing Senate Bill
5, compared with 32 percent who support the law Republican Gov.
John Kasich (KAY'-sik) signed in March. The margin opposing the law
has almost doubled since Quinnipiac's Sept. 27 poll.
GOP voters support the union limits, 59 percent to 32 percent.
Majorities by gender, race, income and education levels want the
law overturned Nov. 8.
The phone survey of 1,668 registered voters has a margin of
error of plus or minus 2.4 percent.
A debate about the ballot issue will air on Ohio NBC affiliates
Tuesday evening.
