Reflector poll shows DeWine and Yost favored in state election races

• Oct 1, 2018 at 4:00 PM

In an online poll last week, the Norwalk Reflector asked readers who they favored in the races for governor and attorney general in the November general election.

More than 400 people participated in the poll.

Republican Mike DeWine and Democrat Richard Cordray are running for governor in the November general election, each hoping to succeed John Kasich, who cannot run again due to term limits. Among Reflector readers, DeWine received twice as much support as Cordray.

Here are the poll results for this one:

• Richard Cordray - 31%

• Mike DeWine - 63%

• Another candidate - 3%

• I can't or won't vote in this race - 3%

State Auditor Dave Yost, a Republican, and former U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach, a Democrat, are running for Ohio Attorney General — a position currently held by DeWine. Among Reflector readers, Yost received nearly two-thirds of the vote.

Here are the poll results for this one:

• Steven Dettelbach - 28%

• Dave Yost - 66%

• Another candidate - 2%

• I can't or won't vote in this race - 4%

At the Congressional level, U.S. Sen Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) is being challenged by U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci, a Northeast Ohio Republican, and incumbent U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Urbana) is being challenged by Janet Garrett, a Democrat from Elyria.

The current poll on the Reflector website asks readers who they will vote for in those two races. Cast your vote and share your opinion at HERE
