Quinnipiac Poll: PA-Gov: Wolf’s Approval Down to 45%
Results from a Quinnipiac University poll released on Tuesday show that 45% of PA voters approve of Wolf’s performance as Governor, down from 47% two months ago. His 39% disapproval rating shows a more significant increase from June, when the figure stood at 32%.
Keeping with recent trends there was a wide gender gap concerning Wolf’s numbers. He polled well among female voters, who were split 46-33 in their approval. Men were more likely to be critical of Gov. Wolf, though, as his rating was actually underwater by a slim 43-45 margin.
The results were most polarized along party lines. 70% of Democrats gave Wolf their approval, compared with just 17% of Republicans. The results also revealed that the Governor still has decent support from Independents, who were split 46-34 in his favor.
His numbers across age demographics was nearly uniform, with his approval standing at 45% from voters 18-25, 44% from those aged 35-49, and 46% from those 50-65 and those 65 and older.
Overall, while Governor Wolf’s numbers aren’t spectacular, the fact that so far he hasn’t taken a hit given the stalemate in Harrisburg is a good sign.
The poll conducted by Quinnipiac University between Aug. 7-18 surveyed 1,085 PA voters on land lines and cell phones. The margin of error for the poll was 3%.
