The Wenzel Strategies survey shows 51 percent of Ohio voters favor a repeal of SB5, compared with just 38 percent who said they would vote to keep the new law in place. Another 11 percent were unsure of the question.
That bodes well for the campaign to repeal the bill. Ohioans must collect 231,149 signatures to put SB 5 on the ballot. (Actually, they have to collect way more, because signatures are often invalid for one reason or another.) Training sessions on how to collect signatures are happening all over the state. Brother Fred Crow from Local 436 says,
Now they're really flying.Fred attended an SB 5 petition training in Geauga County earlier this week. Geauga County is pretty solidly Republican, but there were 60 people at the training. It was sponsored by the Geauga County Democratic Committee. Fred’s planning on going to another one in Columbus.
Signatures can be collected up until June 30, 2011. Make sure you are registered to vote here.
