COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A new poll shows Democratic challenger Ed FitzGerald gained little ground against Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

The poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University in Connecticut shows Republican Kasich ahead of FitzGerald 48 percent to 36 percent.

The same poll in May had Kasich leading by a 50-to-35 percent margin.

The July 24-28 survey notes that many Ohioans still don't know much about FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga County executive. The survey said 65 percent of voters don't know enough about FitzGerald to form an opinion of him.

Fifty-five percent of Ohioans questioned approve of the job Kasich is doing. He was elected governor in 2010.

The survey of 1,366 Ohio voters has a margin-of-error of just under 3 percentage points.

The election is Nov. 4.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A new poll shows Ohio Gov. John Kasich is out in front of Democratic challenger Ed FitzGerald with just under a year before the election.

The poll released Tuesday by Quinnipiac University in Connecticut shows the Republican Kasich is ahead of FitzGerald 44 percent to 37 percent.

The same poll in June had Kasich leading by a 47-33 margin.

The survey this month notes that most Ohioans don't know much about FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga County executive who will be Kasich's likely opponent next November. The poll found that nearly three out of four Ohioans surveyed didn't know enough about FitzGerald to have an opinion about him.

The survey of 1,361 Ohio voters has a margin of error of just under 3 percentage points.
