Strickland: Kasich 'sees victory slipping through his fingers'

Canton, Ohio (CNN) - At a crowded rally inside a Canton union hall Wednesday, a fired-up Gov. Ted Strickland (D-Ohio) said his Republican challenger John Kasich is flailing wildly as his once solid lead in the governor's race has collapsed.

Kasich has taken a particularly harsh tone toward Democrats during a three-day statewide bus tour with other members of the GOP ticket, accusing unnamed opponents of attacking him with "negative, lying smearing stuff" and plotting to steal the election.

Poll: Kasich 49-43 over Strickland in Ohio gubernatorial battle

(CNN) – A new poll indicates that Republican challenger John Kasich holds a 6-point advantage over Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland in Ohio's gubernatorial contest, a race that's captured national headlines thanks to the numerous appearances by top flight surrogates.

According to a Quinnipiac University survey released Tuesday, 49 percent of likely voters in Ohio support Kasich, a former congressman, with 43 percent backing Strickland, a former congressman who was elected governor in 2006. Kasich's six point advantage is within the poll's sampling error. Kasich's margin is also down from a 10 point lead held in a Quinnipiac poll released about a week ago.

As poll shows lead for Kasich, Democrats fight hard

Columbus, Ohio (CNN) - Ohio's Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland thinks the pundits are wrong.

He tells CNN, "I don't think there is an enthusiasm gap in Ohio." As proof he cites he a state Democratic Party analysis that shows "across Ohio more Democrats have requested absentee ballots than have Republicans."

But even if that bears out, it might not be enough for the Democrat to hold onto his seat that one the state party calls "a firewall for President Obama in 2012."

Kasich expanding lead over Strickland

(CNN) - Republican John Kasich has extended his lead over Democratic incumbent Ted Strickland in the Ohio governor's race.

According to a new poll from the University of Cincinnati, Kasich, a former congressman, holds a 51-43 percent lead over the once-popular Strickland. Six percent say they remain undecided – a percentage that may offer the one-term governor a glimmer of hope if he can convince those voters to fall his way in the next three weeks.

The poll surveyed 705 likely voters by telephone between October 8-13 and carries a sampling error of plus or minus 3.7 percent.
