September 13 - 18, 2017 Franklin & Marshall College Poll

The September 2017 Franklin & Marshall College Poll finds that while President Trump’s strong support among Republicans and Conservatives in Pennsylvania has slipped a bit since May, his core support remains relatively stable. President Trump’s job performance ratings have declined since the May Poll, falling from 37% to 29%. Pennsylvania voters believe the President is doing best at dealing with terrorism (49% rate his performance as an “A” or a “B”), while his administration receives its lowest ratings for improving the health care system (50% rate his performance an “F”), dealing with climate change (47% rate his performance an “F”), and protecting the environment (47% rate his performance an “F”). Notably, Republicans’ ratings of the President’s handling of terrorism, foreign policy, and health care have declined since May. Governor Wolf’s positive job approval ratings (38%) are similar to the ratings he received in May. The Governor’s ratings are comparable to Ed Rendell’s ratings at this point in his administration.

​The Franklin & Marshall College Poll is produced in conjunction with the Philadelphia Daily News, WGAL-TV (South Central PA), Pittsburgh Tribune Review, WTAETV (Pittsburgh), WPVITV6/ABC (Philadelphia), Times-Shamrock Newspapers, Harrisburg PatriotNews, and Lancaster Newspapers.
