HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A new poll shows Pennsylvania's gubernatorial race is tightening up.
A Quinnipiac (KWIHN'-uh-pee-ak) University poll released Friday showed Republican Tom Corbett holding onto a slight lead, with support from 49 percent of likely voters and Democrat Dan Onorato (ohn-uh-RAH'-toh) with 44 percent.
A September survey by the same Connecticut-based pollster showed Corbett, the state attorney general, with a 15-point lead.
The latest poll shows Onorato, the elected executive of Allegheny County, leading among women. Corbett was favored by male voters and also was the overwhelming favorite for voters who say they're angry with state government.
The telephone survey of 1,046 likely voters was conducted over a five-day period ending Sunday. The poll carries a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
