Corbett Approval Rating Lowest Ever

Would lose to a bag of coal.


Just before Christmas, here’s a little gift for Tom Corbett’s opponents: A new poll in which all but one of them would beat him. (Sorry John Hanger–too soon on the pot-legalization stuff.)

Pennsylvania voters give Gov. Tom Corbett a negative 36 – 53 percent approval rating, his worst net score ever, and say 56 – 36 percent that he does not deserve reelection, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

That said, his opponents aren’t actually doing that much better than he is. Former auditor Jack Wagner (really?) has a 48%-36% lead over him, but frontrunner Allyson Schwartz only leads 45%-37%. Full poll here.

    True, but I still think he will win the election. Let’s think about this,,,,, the base he fears most will NEVER< EVER< EVER vote Democratic. He has them,,,,,, His losses are to those outside his well defined Talk Radio Base who used tactics that cause the Romney Loss in the Presidential election.

    Granted, as a friend of a certain Talk Radio Station he all but wore Depends to the interview while a bully responsible for the Romney loss threatened a Primary Challenge. It took Corbett only three years to blow the Bully off, bow to the Chamber and Corporate Sponsers, and understand where the money lies.

    Again,,,,Smart, who knows. But one thing we all know. Corbett's Talk Radion Base do as they are told. VOTE STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN.
