Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, a Republican, would lose to the top three Democratic gubernatorial candidates if the election were held today, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll
The survey of 1,235 registered voters released on Monday found that Rep. Allyson Schwartz, former Rep. Joe Sestak, and State Treasurer Rob McCord would all beat the GOP governor by at least 9 percentage points.
“Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett gets a triple dose of bad news. Three Democratic challengers would beat him handily if the election for governor were held today,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
“Fortunately for Gov. Corbett, the election is not today. He has 18 months to turn things around,” Malloy added.
The survey taken April 19-24, found that voters disapprove of the job Corbett is doing by a margin of 47 percent to 38 percent, and only 32 percent said he deserves to be re-elected. Only 29 percent of voters said they had a favorable view of the GOP governor.
