57 percent of voters say they won’t support Trump in 2020

With the 2020 presidential election already underway, 57 percent of registered voters said they would definitely vote against President Donald Trump, according to the latest poll from the PBS NewsHour, NPR and Marist. Another 30 percent of voters said they would cast their ballot to support Trump, and an additional 13 percent said they had no idea who would get their vote. According to the poll, 29 percent of Republicans and conservative-leaning Independents said they felt favorable about Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee. Voters’ preferences are no less clear in the Democratic primary field, which is growing quickly ahead of the party’s first primary debates this summer. The early stage of the Democratic primaries comes as Trump awaits the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and faces a new challenge from the Democratic-controlled House. The partial government shutdown — now in its 27th day and the longest in U.S. history — hasn’t helped. Fifty-seven percent of respondents believe that, overall as president, Trump is not doing enough to work with congressional Democrats, this latest poll suggests. With neither side yielding, nearly two-thirds of Americans admire elected officials who are willing to compromise despite disagreements with others, a slight uptick from April 2017, when 58 percent of U.S. adults said they felt that way. “What we’re seeing in each of these questions is a sense that compromise is desired and both sides should be working more with the other,” Miringoff said. And a bigger segment of Republicans said they want elected officials who don’t waver, compared to Democrats and Independents.

PX column: Dear new governor, please pay attention to us and be nice to...

Cincinnati Enquirer Republican Mike DeWine will be sworn in as Ohio's new governor on Monday. Of course, Ohio's governor is going to pay attention to the state's third-largest city, the home of Fortune 500 giants Kroger and Procter & Gamble, right? Kasich did very little for Greater Cincinnati. Former Adams County Commissioner Stephen Caraway was a ghost to Cincinnati business and economic development leaders during his 2½ years as Kasich's Southwest Ohio liaison. More: 7 ways Mike DeWine will be different than John Kasich 2. Business leaders and Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley made the interchange a priority, and Kasich delivered most of the funding for a project that had been on the drawing board of years. It's a simple message: No other major bridge in Ohio is in worse shape. Work with Northern Kentucky and Gov. They both favored tolling a new bridge, but Northern Kentucky's state lawmakers were never on board. DeWine has said the bridge is a priority.

Kasich: Trump must put the country ahead of his politics

John Kasich (R) responded to President Trump's prime-time address Tuesday by calling on Democrats and Republicans to seek compromise and reach a deal to reopen the federal government. Kasich, who is mulling a potential 2020 presidential run, said in a statement that progress on a deal to reopen the government has to begin with Trump being more "flexible" on his goal to secure funding for construction of a wall or fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border. "The president and the Democrats have to learn to compromise and put Americans first," Kasich, whose term as Ohio's governor ends on Jan. 14, wrote on Twitter. "Border security is important, but both sides should be willing to negotiate on how we do it." In his speech, the president invoked the recent murder of a California police officer, Cpl. Ronil Singh, whom police say was killed by an immigrant suspected of being in the country illegally. Trump called the issue of border security "a crisis of the heart, a crisis of the soul." "All Americans are hurt by uncontrolled illegal migration," Trump said Tuesday night. "It strains public resources and drives down jobs and wages." Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), among others, issued responses to Trump's speech Tuesday night, accusing the president of holding federal workers hostage over his demand for a wall.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich vetoes gun bill, cites ’rotten, stinking politics’

John Kasich on Wednesday vetoed legislation that would make Ohio the last state in the nation to shift the burden of proof in self-defense cases from the defendant to prosecutors. The term-limited Republican governor’s decision to veto House Bill 228 is likely to be the first in a series of battles with the GOP-dominated legislature over legislation passed during his final days in office. HB 228 would also loosen a number of Ohio gun-control rules – including allowing individuals to challenge local gun-control ordinances in court. Kasich indicated earlier on Wednesday that he intended to veto the legislation “Why would I sign a bill that gives more power to the gun advocates?” the governor said during a Columbus Metropolitan Club luncheon. “For the first time in my lifetime, the possibility of somebody coming through that door and shooting us exists,” he continued. It now remains to be seen whether proponents of the bill can get enough votes in the Ohio House and Senate to override Kasich’s veto. While the bill needed only a majority to pass, a veto override requires the support of 60 percent of lawmakers in each chamber. Right now, state law only allows no duty to retreat when defendants are in their home or vehicle. Last week, lawmakers passed a number of other bills that Kasich is also expected to veto, including a pay raise for lawmakers and other elected officials and a “heartbeat bill” that bans abortion when a fetal heartbeat can be detected (which can be as soon as 6 weeks into a pregnancy). The Ohio General Assembly also sent Kasich a second abortion bill that would ban the procedure used for almost all second-trimester abortions.

Obama Laments ‘Broken’ Politics in Stumping for Ohio Democrats

Former President Barack Obama called for Democrats and others concerned about the direction of the U.S. to vote in November and fix “politics that feels broken right now,” as he campaigned in statehouse and Congressional races attacking the politics and policies of his successor, Donald Trump. Obama headlined a rally in Cleveland Thursday night for Richard Cordray, the former head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau who’s running for governor of Ohio, as well as other candidates including Senator Sherrod Brown. With the midterm elections fast approaching, Obama has returned to the campaign trail to help Democrats capture the 23 seats they need to regain control of the U.S. House, as well as backing up-and-coming candidates in races important for redistricting after the 2020 Census. Obama has been trying to make the case that the country has reached a pivotal point, exhorting Democrats and independents to vote in the November elections to reject the policies and behavior of Trump and his Republican allies. Obama also praised his shepherding of the American economy and tweaked Republicans who are taking credit for good economic times under Trump, saying “When you hear these folks bragging about this economic miracle just remember when it started.” He also criticized Republicans’ $1.5 trillion tax cut because of the deficits that will result. “None of this is conservative,” he said. Battleground State Battle In Ohio, Cordray faces Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine in the race to replace Republican Governor John Kasich, who cannot run again because of term limits. Trump easily won Ohio by eight percentage points after Obama carried it in 2008 and 2012 -- and Democrats clearly want to restore it as a swing state, said Paul Beck, professor emeritus of political science at Ohio State University. Trump replaced him with Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, and Republicans are trying to make Cordray’s tenure an issue in the Ohio race. “He didn’t go around trying to take credit for it,” Obama said.
