Results of SurveyUSA Election Poll #21223
 
OH Voters Are Focused on Job Creation, Opposed to Affordable Care Act, Split on Same-Sex Marriage, In Favor of Medical Marijuana:

One week to the 05/06/14 Ohio Primary, Buckeye voters are focused on job creation, ahead of health care and taxes, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for WCMH-TV in Columbus. Job creation is especially driving the ballot-box decisions of lower-income voters, men and middle-aged voters. Healthcare is on the mind of seniors, and Republicans, though for different reasons. Taxes are motivating young voters, conservatives, and voters with children.

Ohio voters oppose the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, 54% to 37%. Whites and blacks, and Democrats and Republicans, see the issue in stark contrast.

Ohio voters support the medical use of marijuana, 56% to 37%, with opposition coming from seniors and conservatives.

Ohio voters split on the issue of same-sex marriage. 43% support legalizing gay marriage. 49% oppose. 48% say Ohio should recognize same-sex marriages that have been performed in other states; 45% say Ohio should not recognize such marriages.

Heading into the final week before the 05/06/14 Primary:

* 46% approve of the job that Republican John Kasich is doing as Governor. 39% disapprove.
* 33% have a favorable opinion of Democratic candidate Ed Fitzgerald; 23% have an unfavorable opinion; significantly: 45% have no opinion of Fitzgerald.
* 46% of voters say Ohio is on the right track; 43% say Ohio is on the wrong track.

In a hypothetical election today for Governor of Ohio, 46% would vote for incumbent Republican Kasich, 36% would vote for Democratic challenger Fitzgerald. In a separate hypothetical election today for Governor, 50% would vote for Kasich if he were opposed by Democratic challenger Larry Ealy, who gets 25%.

Cell-phone and home-phone respondents included in this research: SurveyUSA interviewed 900 state of Ohio adults 04/24/14 through 04/28/14. Of the adults, 810 were registered to vote. Of the registered, 618 were determined by SurveyUSA to be likely voters. This research was conducted using blended sample, mixed mode. Respondents reachable on a home telephone (71% of likely voters) were interviewed on their home telephone in the recorded voice of a professional announcer. Respondents not reachable on a home telephone (29% of likely voters) were shown a questionnaire on their smartphone, tablet or other electronic device.

13Some actions of the Ohio government are reviewable by citizens and by the media, and other actions of the Ohio government are private, and cannot be reviewed by citizens or by the media. Ohio's economic development programs have been made private, and may no longer be reviewed by citizens or the media. Do you think this change was made to ... Improve economic development success? Or to prevent public examination?
