The latest Quinnipiac Poll, presented this week to the OMA Government Affairs Committee, shows that repeal of Senate Bill 5, the public sector collective bargaining reform bill, is still popular with Ohioans, but not quite as much as earlier.
By 51 to 38 percent, Ohio voters support repeal in the November referendum (Issue 2), compared to 56 to 32 percent in July.
Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said: “Support for repealing the bill in the November referendum has dropped from a 24-point to a 13-point margin. Backers of SB 5 have only six weeks to make up the difference, although public opinion appears to be moving in their direction.”
