In case anyone was wondering, polling numbers for the Ohio Attorney General race have finally been revealed. After months of hiding even their own internal poll numbers, it was clear David Pepper was embarrassed by what the numbers said.
His “campaign team” has tried for months to divert the attention of voters from the plain fact that they are sitting on poll numbers, from the Democrats own polling company, left-leaning PPP. The logical explanation was that the numbers were not good for Pepper. I mean, why else would you NOT share the numbers?
Recently, the speculation was confirmed.
The Northeast Ohio Media Group was able to obtain a polling memo prepared for the Republican Party, and the results are, well, laughable.
Not only is David Pepper down, big, he’s getting doubled up by incumbent Mike DeWine. DeWine is polling at 60 percent (margin of error is 3.5 percent). Most attribute it to his success and widespread approval of his performance in several offices representing Ohio voters, both here and in Washington, over several decades. David Pepper stands at a paltry 31 percent.
A near-30 point defeat would be absolutely embarrassing, even for David “Every 4 Years” Pepper. But after so many elections, voters were sooner or later going to wise up to his act, and send him a message. If this holds, it will be a strong message indeed.
