Poll: Corbett Deeply Unfavorable Among Voters

But that doesn’t mean he can’t win re-election.

Tom Corbett

“Only 30.8 percent of likely Pennsylvania voters have a favorable impression of Tom Corbett, up from 29.4 percent in February, according to the survey by the Robert Morris University Polling Institute,” the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. “‘Likely voters in Pennsylvania continue to have a poor impression of Gov. Corbett. This is true across the demographic categories of gender, age and marital status,’ said RMU political scientist Philip Harold, associate dean of the School of Education and Social Sciences.”

Corbett campaign spokesman Billy Pittman said that’ll change now that Corbett has an official opponent, Tom Wolf, in the race. “The governor has been keeping his promises and getting the state’s finances in line. These weren’t always easy decisions or popular decisions,” Pittman said.

The poll also showed Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton as the favorite 2016 presidential candidates of the voters.
