Merlin on the Pennsylvania Governor race…..

Hello Dog again!

This could be possible the last Poll of Day. After having a Poll out for the Pennsylvania Senate Race yesterday Rasmussen looks at the Open Governor Race and finds State Attorney General Tom Corbett (R) running far ahead of his Democratic Opposition.

Seventy-one percent (71%) of Pennsylvania voters are angry with the current policies of the federal government, including 46% who are very angry. Most (58%) also agree with the idea that neither Democratic nor Republican leaders in Congress know what is needed today. Those results are similar with those found on the national level.

Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters in Pennsylvania believe it would be better for the country if most congressional incumbents up for reelection this year were defeated, while only 16% say it would be better if most were reelected.

Rasmussen Survey …..

Pennsylvania Governor 2010

General Election

State Attorney General Tom Corbett (R)  49 %
State Auditor Jack Wagner (D)  28 %
Others  5 %
Undecided  17 %

State Attorney General Tom Corbett (R)  51 %
former U. S. Rep. Joe Hoeffel (D)  29 %
Others  5 %
Undecided  15 %

State Attorney General Tom Corbett (R)  52 %
Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato (D)  26 %
Others  5 %
Undecided  17 %

Merlin’s Observation:

Could Corbett pull Toomey over the Finish Line in the Senate Race?

Merlin

From the Dog
The Rasmussen Poll has this caveat……

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state shows Corbett leading former Congressman Joe Hoeffel 51% to 29%. Against Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato, he leads 52% to 26%. When State Auditor Jack Wagner is his Democratic opponent, Corbett is ahead 49% to 28%.

However, in all three match-ups, at least 15% of voters remain undecided at this point.

and  This…..

Seventy-one percent (71%) of Pennsylvania voters are angry with the current policies of the federal government, including 46% who are very angry. Most (58%) also agree with the idea that neither Democratic nor Republican leaders in Congress know what is needed today. Those results are similar with those found on the national level.

Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters in Pennsylvania believe it would be better for the country if most congressional incumbents up for reelection this year were defeated, while only 16% say it would be better if most were reelected.

Analysis……The voters of this state are mad at their outgoing Governor……very mad….thet are also very mad at incumbents in general…..This is big trouble for this traditionally democratic state…..only time will tell if they stay mad…..

  1. Merlin, if Rendell was not term-limited, he would have been decimated by Corbett.

  3. James B, damn shame the Pennsylvania Democratic Party can’t find a STRONG candidate whose held statewide office to keep the Executive Mansion at Harrisburg in Democratic hands.

    Oh well, I think the Keystone State is cursed: Nixon elected President in 1968=Democrats win governorship in 1970 and 1974; Carter wins in 1976=GOP takes governorship in 1978 and 1982; Reagan’s 2nd term as Prez=Casey Sr., finally gets the state’s top gig in 1986 and 1990; Clinton elected Prez=Ridge elected governor in 1994 and 1998; Bush Jr., wins the presidency in 2000=Rendell wins the PA governorship in 2002 and 2006 and now Obama wins presidency in 2008=GOP likely getting governorship back this year.
