New poll shows tied Ohio governor's race and public souring on Republican candidates

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Another poll of the statewide races shows an increasingly tight contest between Republican Mike DeWine and Democrat Richard Cordray in the race to succeed term-limited Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Overall, the survey is good news for Democrats, who fared much better in favorability as the Nov. 6 election approaches, though Republicans outperformed the national generic ballot.

The poll from Cygnal - a firm with a "B" rating from polling experts FiveThirtyEight - was conducted Oct. 30-31 using live callers on landlines and cell phones. The sample size of 503 likely voters has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.37 percentage points. The poll also included those who had already voted early. The results are weighted to reflect the electorate.

Once again, the poll results found Cordray, the former federal consumer watchdog, and DeWine, the state's attorney general, in a neck-and-neck race with just days to go until the majority of the public votes. Less than 1 percentage point separated the two, with Cordray at 43.2 percent and DeWine at 43.4 percent.
