COLUMBUS: A poll released on the eve of Election Day shows the Ohio governor’s race is a statistical dead heat.

The survey of likely voters released Monday by Quinnipiac University has Republican challenger John Kasich with 47 percent to Democratic incumbent Ted Strickland’s 46 percent.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.

The pollsters say the race could hinge on the 6 percent of likely voters who remain undecided and another 5 percent who have picked a candidate but say they could change their minds.

Strickland in recent weeks has closed the gap with Kasich, who had a 54-37 lead in a mid-September Quinnipiac poll.

The latest survey of 848 likely Ohio voters was taken Oct. 25-30.
