MCall Poll: Corbett Numbers Holds Steady

As John Micek of Capitol Ideas said Wednesday: “Pennsylvania voters don’t like the Republican any more than they did a month ago — but on the upside, they don’t like him any less.”

A collaborative Morning Call/Muhlenberg College poll shows Corbett with the same approval (30 percent) and disapproval (46 percent) ratings he received from their last poll in August.

The only difference is that the number of those with no opinion ticked up from 24 percent to 25.

As in August, 49 percent of those surveyed identified themselves as Democrats. The number of Republicans polled decreased from 40 percent to 39 percent, as did the number of Independents from 10 percent to 8.

The poll of 640 likely voters was conducted between Sept. 10 and 16. The margin of error is +/-4 percent.

Here is the full polling memo:
