Ohio is one state that's had a lot of trouble translating the money from President Obama's stimulus package into new jobs — and a poll indicates they're holding the President accountable.

A Quinnipiac University poll shows that Obama's approval rating in Ohio is at 49 percent, sharply down from a 62 percent approval rating in May. Even fewer Ohioans approve of how he's handling the economy.

Host Liane Hansen speaks with Connie Schultz, a columnist at the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, about how stimulus money has impacted Ohio, and how Ohioans are handling the recession.
