PA-Gov: Quinnipiac Poll: Wolf’s Approval Drops to 41%

Tom-Wolf sadThe budget stalemate may be eating away at Governor Wolf’s political strength.

At least that appears to be the case when looking at the newest Quinnipiac survey.

Wolf’s approval rating now stands at 41% with 44% disapproving.

These numbers represent significant drops from the 45/39 split from August and the 47/32 split from June.

Breaking it down by demographics, there are two large gaps present. The first is one of gender, with just 39% of men approving of Wolf compared to 50% who disapprove. When it comes to women, however, 43% approve of the Governor against 38% who don’t.

There is also a large gap between those that have college degrees and those that don’t. Among college graduates, Gov. Wolf has a healthy 51/37 approve/disapprove split. For those who don’t, 46% disapprove of Wolf while only 37% approve.

This survey was conducted by Quinnipiac University using live interviewers calling land lines and cell phones from September 25th to October 5th. They contacted 1,049 registered voters. The margin of error is +/- 3%.

    Does anybody find it odd that it seems like someone named Will (oddly enough, the same name as Wolf’s legislative affairs secretary) has something invested in the budget battle, only comments on this sort of thing, does it during work hours and collectively sounds like an administration mouth piece? This is almost too good. Shouldn’t these people do their jobs rather than sit and pick fights with PennLive commenters?

  2. I really admire Katie McGinty for sticking around and working hard to see this issue that is affecting so many people get resolved as soon as possible.

    Just kidding, she quit after 6 months on the job when she got a better offer.

    She’s going to fight for middle class people though, especially ones that have dirty coal projects that need help getting approved.**

    **As long as they were McGinty and Rendell supporters

  3. He’ll be in kane territory pretty soon. This poll is prior to his beat down yesterday on the house floor.
