Just a day after signing a historic $2.4 billion transportation bill, Republican Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett’s job approval rating has hit rock bottom and threatens to derail his reelection bid next year, according to a new Public Policy Polling survey.

“Tom Corbett’s situation just keeps getting worse when it was already pretty darn bad,” said Dean Debnam, President of the Democratic-leaning survey organization. “It may be that the only chance Republicans have to hold onto this office next year is for him to step aside.”

The Tuesday release indicated that Corbett is the most unpopular governor in the country tested by PPP.

Just 24 percent of Pennsylvania voters approve of his job performance with 51 percent of Pennsylvania Republicans disapproving.

The PPP surveyed 693 Pennsylvania voters, including an oversample of 491 Republicans and 436 Democratic primary voters from November 22 to 25, down 17 points from a PPP phone survey conducted in March. The overall margin of error is plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.

Corbett trails even the least known potential Democratic opponents by 12 to 20 points. His plummeting popularity is enough to give Democrats a lead of 22 to 39 points with Independents, the survey revealed.

On Monday, Corbett signed a transportation bill that will inject billions into upgrading Pennsylvania’s transportation system over a five-year period.
