Mike DeWine holds narrow lead over Richard Cordray in new Ohio governor’s race poll

BEREA, Ohio - Republican Mike DeWine holds a narrow lead over Democrat Richard Cordray in the Ohio governor’s race, according to a new poll released Tuesday on the eve of the start of early voting.

DeWine has support from 40 percent of Ohio voters, Cordray 37 percent, Libertarian Trarvis M. Irvine 4 percent and the Green Party’s Constance Gadell-Newton 3 percent.

However, the difference between DeWine and Cordray is within the 3.5 percentage point margin of error in the Baldwin Wallace University poll.
