Reader Poll: McCord Wins (Our Poll)

McCord

McCord

The only poll that counts is the one on Election Day, unfortunately for Rob McCord this is not that poll.

McCord did emerge with the most votes in our reader poll, though, which may provide some solace given the recent bad polling news he has received.

A record 2,081 readers responded to this week’s question, the most in PoliticsPA’s illustrious history.

McCord eclipsed Tom Wolf by just twenty votes, with the two candidates compiling 779 and 759 responses respectively.

Allyson Schwartz finished third with 343 votes and Katie McGinty came in last place with the support of 200 readers.

Of course, the only vote that really matters is the one you cast in the voting booth, so make sure to take the time today to vote in this election.

  1. McCord is literally the most arrogant person in the race. I hope he wins. Corbett will easily beat him.

  2. I stand by my analysis…

    The unfavorable ratings revealed in the recent polls tell a very fascinating story, one that I believe will forever haunt the McCord campaign. McCord has the highest unfavorable rating than any other candidate, including Schwartz and yet he is still considered relatively unknown to voters especially compared to his opponents. That means, McCord is less known and less liked; an insurmountable disadvantage. Post-election analysis will harshly criticize the McCord campaign strategy and will be a “what not to do” for future candidates, at least in Pennsylvania. McCord failed to introduce himself to the state; instead his only message was “don’t vote for the other guy.” The nail in the coffin for McCord was unapologetically and viciously going negative, even when elder party leaders and organizations like Fact Check called him out on it, McCord continued to engage in what many consider divisive and dirty politics. He came off as pompous during the debates; not like someone who can get things done or even someone you’d want to have a beer with. Ultimately, McCord failed to provide a plan to voters to move the commonwealth in a new direction and therefore failed to connect with voters or have a resonating message other than, “don’t vote for him, vote for me.” His racially charged attack ads were baseless and unfounded, not to mention declared false by Fact Check; McCord’s ad was similar to when Republicans attacked Obama for the same guilt-by-association style attacks regarding his association with Jeremiah Wright. Democrats responded with their votes, or in this case, lack thereof for McCord. In the last week of the campaign McCord’s number were headed in the wrong direction.

  3. JD… your facts are wrong. McCord’s claim that Wolf publicly supported Robertson after the charges against Robertson came out is accurate. A person of strong integrity and values would have publicly come out against Robertson. Instead, Wolf chose not to. This is a failure to lead and stand up to racism. This alone disqualifies him to be governor.

  5. I guess Mike Fedor was spamming the poll rather than actually doing his job

  6. When the votes are all counted McCord will come out as the winner tonight. If for some reason he does not…. I personally would like to see McCord enter the race as an independent if he does not secure the democratic nomination. He will certainly get a sizable amount of democrats voting for him. He is also liked by many republicans. He could certainly put up a good race in a three-way contest and would have a good chance to win.

  7. JB,
    Have you actually looked into McCord’s background in business? Funny how McCord & team complain about Wolf’s money, when McCord has poured millions himself into his own campaign.
    How exactly is McCord qualified to be Governor, where Wolf is not? Because he’s State Treasurer? I found it hilarious when his campaign staffers argued that he’s the best choice because he won a statewide race. He won Treasurer. Statewide? Of course. Did voters turnout because of him? Absolutely not. They went to polls because of Obama, and voted the Dem ticket.

    Nope, Nope, Nope,
    You are exactly what is wrong with this country. Complain about everyone/everything, but refuse to offer solutions of your own. Maybe you should throw your hat into the ring? If there’s one thing I do ask: never tell a veteran “thank you for your service.” If you don’t vote, you are slapping us in the face.

  8. I can’t stand, basically, any of the candidates running for governor, and I can’t stand Corbett. I’m well past the point of saying “fuck it” and just not voting.

    Furthermore, I wish the Democrats supporting Wolf would look into his not-so-friendly relationship with public education, McCord into his views on choice and marriage equality (which aren’t the same as they were a short time ago), Schwartz into her corporate ties, McGinty into her natural gas connections, and basically anything the Corbett administration has ever done since its first day.

    THESE are our choices? I’m done. I’m so done. Not voting today, not voting in November.

  9. Rob McCord has the support of the working people and labor, LGBT activists, African American activists, the teachers who educate our children, etc etc

    Wolf has his millions he dumped onto your tvs and Rendell and the electeds he could corral.

    This is the people, both moderates and progressives, vs the money and the old guard.

    Tom Wolf is not qualified to be governor. Before this election people were saying maybe he should run for lieutenant. governor.

    For me actions speak louder than outcomes. The outcome today might be that Wolf wins the nomination. His actions throughout his life in business and politics do not represent the core democratic values or at least what they once were.

    Rob McCord is the choice if you really want to bring change to the governor’s office. His actions have proven who he supports and his endorsements show he resonates with the PEOPLE who are really trying to make things better. This will be the case regardless of the outcome of today’s election.
