WaPo: Corbett Still Most Vulnerable Guv
For the seventh month in a row, Pennsylvania sits atop the Washington Post’s list of states most likely to see a party change in the Governor’s mansion.
The D.C. paper of record cites recent polling which continues to show Tom Corbett in negative territory.
Here are the top 5 states.
1. Pennsylvania (R)
2. Maine (R)
3. Florida (R)
4. Arkansas (D)
5. Illinois (D)
Here is the full writeup:
1. Pennsylvania (R): Gov. Tom Corbett (R) is still the most vulnerable governor in America. A Franklin and Marshall College poll out this week showed only 23 percent of voters said Corbett has performed well enough to deserve a second term. But the most interesting developments in this race have been on the Democratic side, where Rep. Allyson Schwartz (D) cut ties with moderate groups in an apparent effort to protect her left flank, well-funded former state revenue secretary Tom Wolf and former Rendell administration official Katie McGinty hit the airwaves (McGinty’s buy was small), and Treasurer Rob McCord landed a union endorsement. A costly and competitive Democratic race no doubt helps Corbett, but it probably would not be enough on its own to save him. (Previous ranking: 1)
