Nobody Likes Tom Corbett

OK, maybe not no one — but pretty close. A recent survey from Harper Polling showed that just 26 percent of respondents think Corbett should be reelected next year, and it only gets worse from there. In fact, 45 percent of the “somewhat conservative” respondents in the poll said Corbett’s term should come to an end, compared to just 40 percent of those considering themselves “independent.” This, of course, comes just a week after Corbett’s lukewarm state budget, which failed on the liquor privatization and public pension fronts — along with misses in Medicaid reform, transportation funding, and the ailing school budget.
