The latest Quinnipiac Poll brings positive news to Governor Tom Wolf- an increase in approval ratings.
The new report shows that the Governor’s approval rating is now 47%, a 3% increase from April’s results. The number for disapproval is also down 2% from April, as it currently stands at 32%.
Gov. Wolf attracts more support from women, seeing a 51% approval rating compared to 43% from men.
As expected, the Governor’s approval ratings are also more favorable among Democrats, 68%, than Republicans, 28%. Independents, meanwhile, give Wolf 44%.
“Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf prolongs the honeymoon with job approval numbers his Republican predecessor, Tom Corbett, could only have dreamed of,” notes Tim Malloy, assistant director the Quinnipiac University Poll.
The state’s legislators, however, didn’t have as much success with Pennsylvanians as Wolf.
The state legislature’s approval rating stands at 28%, with 53% of voters disapproving of the job.
There is not a wide gap between any of the demographic categories when it comes to the legislature’s approval rating. The legislature, however, garners the most support from Republicans (35%) and women (29%).
This Quinnipiac survey was conducted from June 4th to June 15th. 970 Pennsylvania registered voters were interviewed through land lines and cell phones. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.2%.
