Strickland's approval takes a hit in Ohio

(CNN) - Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland's approval rating has taken a hit as he grapples with a flailing local economy a massive budget shortfall, according to a new poll.

In a Quinnipiac Survey released Tuesday morning, the Ohio Democrat's approval rating stands at 56 percent - seven points less than it was one month ago.

The poll also shows divided opinion over the governor's proposal to use close to $7 billion of the federal stimulus package and a portion of the state's rainy day fund to meet the budget gap.

The poll, which surveyed 1,299 Ohio voters, was conducted from March 10-15 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percent.

Strickland faces reelection in 2010.

    Did Strickland make you vote for W? He tried to tell you NOT to in 2004. You did it to yourself, now take the pain without the pill. Your state gave W the right to spend 2.5 more trillion dollars.
