From CQ, on the congressional rematch in Cincinnati:
A recent poll for the campaign of former Rep. Steve Chabot (R) gave him a 14-point lead over Rep. Steve Driehaus (D) in their rematch in Ohio’s 1st district.
Public Opinion Strategies said in a May 24 memo that it polled 400 likely voters in the Cincinnati-based district on May 12-13 and found that 53 percent preferred Chabot and 39 percent preferred Driehaus. It said 34 percent of voters indicated the Congressman deserves re-election and 49 percent said it’s time for someone new.
“Not only is the political environment providing the wind at Steve Chabot’s back, but Congressman Driehaus’ vote in support of health care reform has rubbed voters in this conservative district the wrong way,” POS pollster Neil Newhouse wrote.
It’s Chabot’s poll, so apply the appropriate skepticism, but it’s also consistent with earlier polling.
