Kathleen Kane, the Democrat running for Attorney General, has a double digit lead, 48 percent to 37 percent, over GOP candidate Dave Freed.
Democratic state Rep. Eugene DePasquale (D-York) leads Republican state Rep. John Maher (R-Allegheny) in the race for Auditor general, 37 percent to 36.
Incumbent Treasurer and Democrat Rob McCord leads Diana Irey Vaughan, the Washington County Commissioner and Republican candidate, 39 percent to 37.
Gov. Tom Corbett enjoys positive job approval, according to the poll, 48 percent to 41.
The poll was commissioned by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and conducted by Susquehanna Polling & Research. The pollster surveyed 800 likely voters from Oct. 29-31 with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.46 percent.
Like any pollster this week, they had to wrangle with Hurricane Sandy – which made landfall right in the middle of their polling time frame.
However, their results – Kane with a solid lead, and other Dem row office hopefuls with a small lead and tons of undecideds, is in line with other polls on the races – including the scant handful on the Auditor and Treasurer races.
Corbett’s numbers are better than most polls recently, but that could be a result of his handling of the hurricane.
