LG Poll: Majority of Voters Undecided in Democratic Lieutenant Gov Primary
Braddock Mayor John Fetterman leads the candidates with 20%, Chester County commissioner, Kathi Cozzone has 10%, current Lieutenant Governor Mike Stack has 8%, state Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-Montgomery) has 4%, Aryanna Berringer has 2%, and Lancaster County Commissioner Craig Lehman has 1%.
Most of Fetterman’s support comes from his home turf in the western part of the state, getting 35% of voters in the northwest, and 41% in the southwest/Pittsburgh area.
Fetterman also leads all candidates in favorability, with 20% of voters having a favorable opinion of his, with 13% unfavorable. The favorability ratings are not a perfect measure for candidate though, with the majority of voters having no opinion towards all of the candidates. This is likely caused by a lack of statewide name recognition of the candidates. Stack and Fetterman are the only candidates who have run for statewide office in recent years.
In good news for Stack, 50% of voters have not heard news reports about the internal investigation in to him and his wife’s behavior towards state troopers and workers at the Lieutenant Governor’s mansion.
A large majority of voters, 81% had an unfavorable opinion of President Trump, while 14% had a favorable opinion. Most of Trump’s favorable ratings came from the northwest and southwest parts of the state. Majority of voters in every region of the state held an unfavorable opinion of Trump.
