A new Quinnipiac poll has terrible numbers for supporters of the extreme SB5 law. Voters are rejecting the law by a margin of 25%, double the margin the same poll measured just a month ago. Voters now support repeal by 57% - 32% - the worst showing of any poll taken to date.
Across nearly every demographic, there is widespread opposition to this law. Even 32% of Republicans oppose SB5
- Men, 54 - 38 percent, and women, 58 - 27 percent;
- Those without college degrees, 56 - 30 percent, and those with degrees, 57 - 37 percent;
- Whites, 54 - 35 percent, and blacks, 76 - 15 percent;
- Voters making over $100,000, 52 - 42 percent, those who earn less, 59 - 30 percent;
- Voters in union households, 70 - 24 percent, non-union households, 52 - 35 percent.
Voters also disagree 57 - 34 percent with Gov. Kasich's argument that the limits on union power are needed to balance the budget.
With just 2 weeks left to go, the Pro SB5 campaign might have to turn to even greater desperate measures, or try to rely on the partisan Issue 3 campaign to at least hold its minimal base of support. One thing is for certain, with so much on the line, those favoring the repeal of SB5 are not going to let up in the final two weeks.
