Ohio House GOP knocks the 3-C from the tracks.

Back in February I used an Ohio News poll to highlight the political gains to be made by opposing the mindnumbingly stupid 3-C Slow Speed Choo Choo.

Below is a table broken down by age group. The columns include voter interest(gaugued by total percentage who said they were “extremely” or “very” interested in voting in the fall), support or opposition to the 3-C plan, and choice for Governor.

So, looking at these numbers, what do we learn?

First off, and most important, those who are most supportive of both 3-C and Ted Strickland are also the age group least likely to vote in the Fall.

All three other age groups oppose the 3-C project, two of them significantly so. And on average, these same three age groups support Kasich by a significant 9 point margin.

And most importantly, they are actually going to vote.

Now what’s interesting about these numbers is that they came out before the announcement was even made and before a massive attack by newspapers and their columnists on the plan.

And it seems the Ohio House GOP has embraced the idea that the Choo Choo is a No Go and a benefit for them in November.

Here’s a solid video just released from the caucus highlighting the enormous waste of taxpayer dollars, among other things.
