Eighty-five percent (85%) of Likely Voters in Ohio say they know someone who is out of work and looking for a job. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state finds that just 11% say they do not know someone unemployed and job-hunting.
These findings are roughly in line with findings nationwide.
Ohio voters do not have optimistic views of the job market in general. Fifty-four percent (54%) say the job market is worse than a year ago. Thirty-seven percent (37%) say it is about the same, and just nine percent (9%) say it is better.
