The poll found Kasich, who has been mentioned as a possible 2016 presidential candidate, leading FitzGerald 45 percent to 44 percent with 11 percent saying they are unsure.

The poll's findings are welcome news for Fitzgerald. A Quinnipiac poll taken two months earlier found Kasich leading FitzGerald, 50 percent to 35 percent.

The poll was conducted among 889 Ohio voters from July 9 to July 10.
