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.
