Things aren't so rosy for newly-minted GOP governors from Pittsburgh.
We noted yesterday how Shaler's Tom Corbett was booed upon his public homecoming to the city over the weekend. Voters are the same to Ohio governor John Kasich, a native of McKees Rocks.
Amid fierce battles over his support of limiting collective bargaining rights, Kasich's approval numbers have become "absolutely brutal," according to a new poll from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling, dropping to 35% approve/54% disapprove. Among those who voted for him, only 71% approve. It's so bad for him that independents are turning away from the GOP and even non-union households in the state say they support collective bargaining rights.
