Ohioans give Governor Mike DeWine's pandemic briefings high marks


(Berea) - A new Baldwin Wallace University Ohio poll indicates 85 percent of voters approve of how the governor is handling the coronavirus pandemic.

Only 50% of Ohioans approve of how President Trump is handling the crisis. BW conducted a poll online over the past few days with around 800-self-identified registered voters.

Political science professor Dr. Lauren Copeland says Ohioans like DeWine's fact based, approach. She tells Newsradio WTAM 1100 that Ohioans are uneasy with Trump's political attacks, his promotion of unproven treatments, and his constant contradictions.

The last similar poll said 80 percent of Ohioans approved what the governor was doing.

This latest poll also shows a wide majority of Ohioans had favorable views of state health director Dr. Amy Acton, and Dr. Anthony Fauci.

In addition, the survey indicates that nearly 63-percent of Ohioans say they will get the COVID-19 vaccine when it is developed. About eleven-percent of participants said they wouldn't take part in a vaccine, and another 26-percent say they're unsure.

Medical experts believe it will likely be at least a year or more before there's a coronavirus vaccine.
