The August 2014 Franklin & Marshall College Poll of Pennsylvania registered voters shows little has changed in the Governor's race since June. A majority of voters (61% versus 59% in June) continues to believe that the state is “off on the wrong track,” and only one in four (26% in both surveys) believes Governor Tom Corbett has performed sufficiently well to deserve re-election. The survey finds Governor Corbett trailing his Democratic challenger Tom Wolf, 49% to 24%, compared to 47% to 25% in June.
