Poll: Wolf Widens Lead Over Corbett
The news keeps getting worse for Gov. Tom Corbett.
A new poll shows him 30 points behind opponent Tom Wolf in the November gubernatorial election, the Pittsburgh Business Times reports. Wolf has the support of 55 percent of voters, while Corbett hovers at 24.7 percent. That’s the biggest reported lead for Wolf so far.
And the news gets worse if you take a closer look at the polling numbers. Among undecided voters, Wolf is the candidate they’re leaning to by a 2-to-1 margin. The even bigger problem for Corbett? “The remaining undecided voters are mostly Republican,” the university says in a press release.
The bottom line: “Simply put, there is no enthusiastic base of support for Governor Corbett to rely on come Election Day,” said Robert Morris University political scientist Philip Harold.
