Ohio Governor Race 2022 Polls: Governor DeWine leads Jim Renacci, 45% to 27% (Last 3 polls average). Both candidates have been gaining from Joe Blystone who has been losing momentum over the last few weeks.
Amongst Democrats, no new polls have been reported in April-May. Nan Whaley is ahead on Google Search as well as on Social media. She was also ahead in the last poll reported in March. However, the gap between Whaley and Cranley on Google Search has crashed during the last 7 days. This could make the election close and unpredictable.

Racial Demographics of Ohio as per the ACS

Ohio has rapidly turned right as Democrats have lost votes in their working-class strongholds in North West Ohio, especially in Mahoning and Trumbull counties. Both counties swung over 25 points in 2020 from 2012 when Obama won the state thanks to his margins in counties like these. Similar to other states, Democrats have made improvements in educated places – the most educated county in the state, Delaware County, the northern suburbs of Columbus have swung to the left rapidly along with Hamilton County, home to Cincinnati which was unusually conservative for an urban county pre-Trump.

Democrats have to rely on improving margins in the North West and along Lake Erie if they want to have any chance of retaking the governor’s office. White votes remain a large majority and it’s the same case in both party’s primaries. Non-white voters are a pivotal voting bloc for Democrats.
