commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Daniel…..Pennsylvania Governor: Corbett continues to lead Democrats although Onorato has crept a little bit closer to him….

Hello all!

Pennsylvania State Attorney General Tom Corbett (R-PA) continues to lead all Democrats in his Quest to replace Term-Limited Governor Ed Rendell (D-PA). Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato (D-PA) runs strongest against Corbett. This has probably to do with the Pennsylvania Primary who is fast approaching.

Democrats pick their Nominee on May 18th.

It’ll be interesting to see whom Democrats will pick on May 18th. Certainly one of the more interesting Governor Primaries this year.

  1. Embarrassing for Wagner to be polling very badly in head-to-head matchup against Corbett, considering that Wagner is holding statewide office at the moment.

  2. I think Onorato has the Inside Track now to win the Primary. That’s just a guess though.

    I’m hearing there’ll be a new Franklin & Marshall Survey out either tomorrow or next week.

  4. James B, what do you mean Perry has the same problem ?

    I know he burnt some bridges with many of KBH’s wealthy backers by crushing her in last month’s primary and all including Karl Rove, James Baaker, George HW and Babs Bush including half of the state’s GOP US House delegation and former TX GOP politicos who endorsed Hutchison, but are they going to risk the GOP’s hold on the TX governorship by secretly voting for White, a Democrat in November just to stick it to Perry ?


    James B, look at the 3 links I posted above there and you’ll see Perry always had a lead around 7-10 points the last 2 gubernatorial campaigns and compare them to this year’s gubernatorial contest.

  6. James B, those who endorsed KBH in the primary for TX governor and got egg on their faces once Perry destroyed her by a landslide, will they fall in line behind Perry OR will they stick it to him once again by voting for White in November ?

  8. James B, that was a LONG list of those who backed KBH, I do see them either falling in line behind Perry for the general or secretly voting for White.
