Poll: Corbett’s PSU Lawsuit More Popular Than Corbett

If Tom Corbett’s bizarre flip-floppin’ lawsuit against the NCAA (for sanctions he once agreed with) was politically motivated, it wasn’t the worst idea in the world. According to a survey conducted today by Public Policy Polling, 52 percent of surveyed PAers support the suit, 34 percent oppose it, and 14 percent, like Corbett, aren’t sure what they think. Corbett himself, according to the poll, has a 38 percent favorability rating. And one last thing, before you get tired of polls: The percentage of Pennsylvanians (62%) who think the NCAA’s sanctions against Penn State are too harsh far exceeds the number who support Corbett’s suit, suggesting the man has a unique power to taint whatever he touches.
