PA Gov. Tom Corbett Is in Serious Trouble

Pennsylvania’s Tom Corbett, not winning

Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett (R) has some of the worst polling numbers for any incumbent governor in the country. He has a serious uphill climb in his re-election bid.

A new Quinnipiac poll found the people of Pennsylvania clearly don’t like their governor. Only 36 approve of his job performance as governor, while 53 percent disapprove. Even worse, the poll found 56 percent of voters don’t think he deserves to win another term, while only 36 thinks deserves to win again. Similarly, by a margin of 52-40 voters said they don’t think Corbett should even run.

As a result Corbett is now losing to six of the seven possible Democratic nominees. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, the front runner in the crowded Democratic primary, is leading Corbett 45/37.

At this point Pennsylvania looks like a lock for Democrats.
