Poll: Akron Buckeye Poll: 2015 Ohio Presidential Politics
The 2015 Akron Buckeye Poll investigates underlying attitudes toward the 2016 presidential election in Ohio. The evidence suggests a close contest for the open seat in the White House, a sharp contrast with 2008—the previous open seat race. The state of the Ohio economy is a critical difference between the two elections. The poll indicates that few Ohioans have firm views on Democratic or Republican candidates, but among those that do, the early presidential race resembles the national contest.
