    Tough Start for Ohio's New Governor

    Yesterday it was the Governor of Michigan Rick Snyder who saw his popularity plunge in a poll hitting lows that took his predecessor over seven years to achieve. Today, it is the Governor to the south Of Michingan - John Kasich of Ohio.

    Poll: Tough start for Ohio’s new governor – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    According to a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday, 46 percent of registered voters in Ohio disapprove of the job the new Republican governor's doing, with three in ten approving of how Kasich's handling his duties and nearly a quarter unsure. The survey indicates that by a 53 to 36 percent margin, Ohioans say the governor's budget is unfair. The budget aims to close the state's projected $8 billion deficit by cutting spending but not raising taxes.

    Kasich has been in the national spotlight the past two months for joining with another freshman Republican governor, Scott Walker of Wisconsin, in moving to try and strip some collective bargaining rights from public service union members in an effort to try and balance the budget. About half of those questioned in the survey say they oppose the bill, which is currently working its way through the Ohio legislature.

    Just like in Wisconsin, both Snyder and Kasich have come under fire for attacking labor unions, worker rights and a budget titled in favor of helping corporations while making cuts on average citizens.

    The sleeping giant is awakening.

    Citizens are going to have to face the facts that Unions are a large part of what is wrong with State Budgets from Coast to Coast and Governors have few choices to try get the spending under control.

    You can cut services to everyone and or raise taxes for everyone or reduce the ridiculous cost most Governors face through no fault of their own.

    California's day without sunshine is coming and it won't be pretty.

    Sadly the public tends to fall for the BS put into media by unions that they are needed or the world will collapse.

    Truth is and I have said it over and over, wage and hour laws along with OSHA keeps most people from becoming slaves.

    I do agree that minimum wages need to be improved but other than that Unions are in it to make money and pay bribes to politicians with by spending the money members pay in dues and they never ask the members who to bribe next.

    Ohio is my home state and it's a mess. Hopefully Kasich can fix it. It looks like he is into privatizing things like the prisons and the state liquor stores. I wish him the best.
    I'm not worried about his or Walker's poll numbers. I think they'll go back up when people realize they are doing what's best for the tax payers.

    As a former Michigander, I absolutely hope that Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio do everything possible to become like the third world when it comes to education. I am a Texan now, and we need somebody below us.

    White Students already outperform White students in those three states.

    Black students already outperform black students in those three states.

    And hispanic students already outperform hispanic students in those three states.

    the only way to pretend Texas is not outperforming those three states is to stick your head in the sand.

    He's making difficult choices and is being demonized for it. No surprise. If he accomplishes what he set out to do, the numbers will reflect that.

    You bet it is, let's see their asses get kicked out of office.
