Inquirer Poll: Kane 49, Freed 29

Democratic Attorney General hopeful Kathleen has a commanding lead over Republican opponent Dave Freed. The Philadelphia Inquirer poll was conducted after Kane began her fall TV ads but before Freed’s did.

Kane is ahead 49 percent to 29. That’s 8 points better than she did in the Inky’s poll from the first week of October, when she lead 41 percent to 29.

The survey was conducted by a pair of pollsters – one Democrat, one Republican – from Oct. 23 – 25. They surveyed 600 likely voters via live interviews with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent.

It’s unclear how Freed might overcome Kane in the coming week; they similar amounts of cash on hand heading into the home stretch.

Other numbers in the poll:

Gov. Tom Corbett’s job approval is positive for the first time in any poll in awhile, 43 percent to 42.

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter has a 59 percent approval rating in the Philadelphia area, 22 percent disapprove.

Nearly half of Philly-area respondents said this should be the final season for Eagles coach Andy Reid.

  1. Inquirer poll conducted by one Democrat and one Republican? My bet is the Republican was Michael Smerconish or Joe Scarborough.

  2. There is no poll showing Dave Freed winning that I recall.

    However, 20 points? Highly unlikely. The Democratically owned Inquirer disgraces itself by purveying slanted information.

    I think Jimmie Lee and McLaughlin will be big winners in this campaign because of the care accuracy of their polls.

    It will be interesting to see where Kane does well and, more significantly, where Free fails. I think much of RedState Pennsylvania may vote for the independent Democrat over Tom Corbett’s Republican. 32 years of One Party Rule is enough.

  3. Holy crap.20 points. What a blow out. It’s over. Maybe next time the R’s won’t let Corbett hand pick his puppet candidate. They should have let Sen. John Rafferty run.

  4. well i hope we will see a democrat attorney general in a long time she will put crooked positional like tom corbett
