COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) — On Monday, ABC6/FOX28 created a poll asking viewers if they think Republican Governor Mike DeWine should be removed from office.
ABC6/FOX28 polls are typically left open for less than 12 hours. As our regular broadcast viewers are aware, we do a new poll each day, usually in our 7 pm newscast. With our software, we cannot start a new on-air poll until we close the previous poll.
Instead of ending this specific poll the next day, we made the decision to leave it open beyond 24 hours because it continued to generate a high number of votes.
The poll was covered on Monday in our evening newscasts and our late newscasts. It was then covered the following day in our morning newscasts and our 5 pm and pm newscast. This specific poll was likely covered on-air more than any other poll in the past year.
In total, this poll generated 18,420 votes. The final results of the poll are as follows:
