New Polls Finds Democrats Surging in State House Districts


Even in districts they gerrymandered, GOP can’t outrun stink of corruption

Fresh polls from Public Policy Polling in seven highly competitive Ohio state House districts show Democrats leading or within striking distance. The polls also find Joe Biden leading or highly competitive in many traditionally Republican, suburban districts.

“Even in gerrymandered districts they’ve drawn for themselves, Ohio Republicans can’t outrun the stink of their corruption with FirstEnergy and Larry Householder,” said ProgressOhio Managing Director Michael McGovern. “Ohio voters are sick of footing the bill for Republican corruption and are ready to clean house.”
