Bob Taft's Disapproval Reaches New Low

According to a Zogby Online Poll, Gov. Bob Taft (R-OH) has an approval rating only in the single digits at 6.5%. And only 3% rate his job performance as either"good" or "excellent." The poll also found that 61% of respondents felt Taft should have resigned his office after the Tom Noe scandal surfaced and when Taft was convicted of failing to report golf outings with donors to his re-election campaign in 2002. The latest SurveyUSA poll of US Governors released on 11/29 shows Taft's approval/disapporval standing at 18%/77%, respectively. Still a fairly dismal outlook for the final year of Taft's Administration.

As an aside, the same Zogby Online Poll showed President Bush's approval rating in Ohio at 46%.

A good first step for the governor might be to spend some time actually governing. During the hearings as per his ethics conviction last August, it was revealed how many golf outings he went on. It's a mystery to me how he could actually do his job if he spent this many days/hours on the links. Maybe that's why Ohioans pay some of the highest taxes in the country (7th highest as a % of personal income) for next to lowest growth of 50 states (Cleveland Plain Dealer 2-20-06).
