The September 2014 Franklin & Marshall College Poll of Pennsylvania registered voters shows that Tom Wolf maintains a sizable lead over Republican incumbent Tom Corbett. The survey finds Governor Corbett continues to trail his Democratic challenger Tom Wolf, 49% to 31%. Wolf’s lead is similar among likely voters. As in prior surveys, a majority (60%) of registered voters continues to believe the state is “off on the wrong track” and only three in ten (30%) believe Governor Corbett has performed sufficiently well to deserve re-election. Most (84%) registered voters have seen advertising for the governor’s race, but only one in ten (10%) say a commercial has changed their gubernatorial preference.
