The latest Ohio poll says Governor Bob Taft approval rating was lower last month than at any time in the four years he’s been Governor. The poll – conducted by the University of Cincinnati’s Institute for policy research – says 40 percent of the 843 adults it surveyed last month said they approved of the way Taft was handling his job. Forty-eight percent of those surveyed said they disapproved of the job he was doing. That’s an all-time high for disapproval for a governor since the poll began tracking job performance in 1983. The poll has a three-point martin for error. Pollster Eric Rademacher says bad weather during the polling period might have affected the results so another poll will be taken in about two weeks. Taft spokesman Orest Holubec says the Governor doesn’t need a poll to tell him that the tax increases and budget cuts he has proposed to resolve a budge deficit are unpopular.
