Neil Newhouse of Public Opinion Strategies is one of the most well-respected pollsters out there. If he's your pollster, you've hired one of the best.
And a new poll from Public Opinion Strategies shows Mike DeWine absolutely smoking Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray.
They sampled 600 likely voters. The party ID breakdown was 37-30 in favor of the Dems, or about what it was in the 2008 election. And voters were asked straight up who they prefer, Cordray or DeWine.
DeWine is up 46-38 on Cordray.
Among Independents, DeWine is up 46-27.
Cordray is only winning 68% of the Democrats.
DeWine is winning 88% of the Republicans, once again disproving theories of some type of right wing rebellion against DeWine.
Cordray has a massive hill to climb.
