CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A new report from Public Policy Polling shows that 62 percent of Ohioans think that the Ohio State football team would be able to beat the Cleveland Browns.

The report includes a poll of 762 likely voters in Ohio on questions about the upcoming presidential and Senate races. The poll showed that Clinton was leading Trump 44 to 43 percent when third party candidates were included and 48 to 47 percent when they were not included. It also showed Rob Portman leading Ted Strickland 51 to 36 percent.

The poll also asked questions about local sports and public figures, including whether or not the Browns could defeat Ohio State. Of those polled, only 23 percent thought the Browns would win, while 15 percent said they weren't sure.

This is up from a March Public Policy Polling study that showed that 57 percent thought Ohio State could beat the Browns.

But hey, at least 43 percent said they preferred the Browns over the Bengals.
