Ohio votes on whether to overturn anti-union law
But, earlier, at a union hall in Bond Hill, Kasich's union opponents had plenty to say about Issue 2, the ballot issue which could do away with Senate Bill 5, the Kasich-backed bill that would limit collective bargaining rights for public employees.
Doug Sizemore, the executive director of the Cincinnati AFL-CIO Labor Council, said he is paying no attention to polling.
"The true measure is tomorrow,'' Sizemore said. "That's why we have to work until the very last minute to get out every vote we can."

Public Policy Polling released a poll Monday showing that 59 percent of Ohioans plan to vote "no" on Issue 2, which would repeal the bill, while only 36 percent said they prefer keeping it in place.
A key to the 23 point margin is the fact that, according to the poll, Kasich and the Republicans in the legislature who passed the measure have failed to build rock-solid support for it among fellow Republicans - three of every 10 GOP voters said they will cast a "no" vote.
If Senate Bill 5 goes down, it could be a stinging defeat for Kasich, who staked his reputation - and his low job approval numbers - on passage of this bill.
Good luck to the unions and working people of Ohio!
