PA-Gov: Poll: Wolf Approval Rating at 50%

tom wolfGovernor Tom Wolf’s approval ratings are still strong.

That’s according to Morning Consult, who tested the performance of all fifty Governors throughout America.

Wolf scored a 50% approval rating against a 36% disapproval rating.

Morning Consult hypothesizes that the Governor’s positive numbers are the result of being new to the office.

“Voters appear to give the benefit of the doubt to governors who have only recently won office,” they write. “Less than a year into their terms, Baker, Hogan, Alaska’s Walker, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R), Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts (R) and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) all have approval ratings north of 59 percent. Hawaii Gov. David Ige (D) and Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) both have approval ratings over 50 percent.”

Just one freshman Governor – poor Bruce Rauner, Republican of Illinois – received a higher disapproval than approval score.

For those interested, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker (R) performed the best with a 74% approval rating and just 14% disapproving. Meanwhile, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) brought up the rear with an approval rating of only 26% against a 65% disapproval rating.

Morning Consult surveyed 3,832 registered Pennsylvania voters. The margin of error is +/-1.6%.

    This governor is doing a fine job fighting the religious zealotry that wants LGBT discrimination to stay legal.

    This man has done nothing to impress me. Still no budget. Talking about 7% sales tax. Wants to raise school tax. Everything he said he would not do to get you to vote for him he wants to do now.
    As far as I’m concerned he is sealing he fate for a second term very quickly.

    k3 in your county you probably can’t find 50 people with a full set of teeth

    These must be the same pollsters who give Obama a 45% rating. In the county in which I reside you could not find 50 people who would have a kind word to say about Wolf.

    Obama gave him the Rating.

    Next time ask the opinion of 3832 working people…

    oops!! “smarter”

  8. gulagPittsburgh says:

    No surprise to me. Half the population is amrter than the median; those are the Dems. The other half are dumber than the median; those are the GOP.

  9. Josh Tail says:

    Wolfs numbers are good and a Republican congress helps. He has someone to fight against and help boost his rating and vice versa for Republicans. He is not prefect but much better then Corbett who was just a lousy governor.

    Maybe if he wakes up and sees what the Repervlican CLOWN CAR is trying to do in the State Senate, he will get some more support from his base.

    Kane is being rail-roared and he sits saying nothing. Like her … hate her … it shouldn’t matter. The Repervlicans are trying to pull an end-around on the Constitution – and it is WRONG.
