Wolf has lead over Corbett in recent poll

Demo­crat Tom Wolf has a big lead over Re­pub­lic­an Gov. Tom Corbett, ac­cord­ing to the Frank­lin & Mar­shall Col­lege Poll that was re­leased last week.

Wolf owns an ad­vant­age of 47 per­cent to 25 per­cent, with the rest un­de­cided.

The poll con­sisted of re­sponses from 502 re­gistered voters.

In Phil­adelphia, Wolf leads 74 per­cent to 8 per­cent.

Pres­id­ent Barack Obama did not fare well in the poll. Asked to rate his per­form­ance in of­fice, 42 per­cent said he was do­ing a poor job. An­oth­er 22 per­cent rated him fair, with 27 per­cent say­ing he was do­ing a good job and 7 per­cent giv­ing him ex­cel­lent grades.

Voters were also asked wheth­er they sup­por­ted ef­forts by the state to sell li­quor stores to private own­ers. They favored such a sale by a count of 49 per­cent to 34 per­cent. ••
