The pressure for third-place GOP presidential candidate John Kasich to drop out of the race has increased with nearly half of all voters in Ohio believing their governor should call it quits, a new poll reveals.
A Public Policy Polling survey
released Monday shows some 49 percent of voters in The Buckeye State believe Kasich should end his quest for the White House, with just 38 percent saying he should stay in.
That finding is a far cry from two months back when just 34 percent thought he should bid adieu to the race versus 52 percent who believed he should keep going.
The poll also found that 49 percent of Ohio voters believe Kasich's presidential bid has "caused him to pay insufficient attention to his Gubernatorial duties," with just 31 percent saying he is giving enough attention to them.
His approval ratings have also headed south, with 46 percent of voters approving of Kasich and 40 percent disapproving. That compares to the 54 percent approval rating and 36 percent disapproval rating he had in March.
The Public Policy Polling survey of 799 registered voters was conducted on April 26th and 27th and has a margin of error is +/-3.2 percent.
