Rasmussen Reports released new polling data Wednesday showing that the race between incumbent Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland and former Congressman and Fox contributor John Kasich has tightened.
This is the closest the race has been since early August and the fifth straight poll of the race to show Kasich's support between 47% and 50%. However, for Strickland, it's his strongest showing since May. Two weeks ago, Kasich held an eight-point advantage over Strickland, who is seeking a second four-year term.
Rasmussen says that Kasich holds 48 percent of likely voters and Strickland 45 percent, with a 4 percent margin of error. Another 3 percent favored another candidate and 4 percent were undecided.
