New Polls: Wolf Just As Popular As Corbett; Kane, Sestak, Clinton, Trump Leading

A new Franklin & Marshall Poll released Thursday found Gov. Wolf is just as popular as Gov. Corbett was-- 33 percent to 31 percent; Kane is leading the Democratic contest for Attorney General; Joe Sestak is leading the Democratic race for the state’s U.S. Senate seat; and Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are leading in the presidential race.
The more surprising result is those polled said state government and politicians were the No. 1 problem facing Pennsylvania, twice as high as education at 18 percent.  Overall, 67 percent of those polled think the state is on the wrong track (up 5 percent from October).  52 percent blame the Legislature and 32 percent the Governor (36 percent in October). Only 15 percent think the General Assembly is doing a good job.
In the Democratic race for Attorney General, Kane is leading in a Harper Poll released this week with 31 percent followed by Zappala at 18 percent and Shapiro at 13 percent.
In the U.S. Senate Democratic race, Sestak has 17 percent, McGinty at 13 percent and Fetterman at 6 percent.  The Harper Poll found Sestak at 33 percent, McGinty 28 percent and Fetterman at 11 percent.
The F&M Presidential Poll found Clinton leading Sanders 46 to 29 percent.  The Harper Poll found Clinton at 55 percent and Sanders 28 percent.
On the Republican side of the “Presidential” race in Pennsylvania, the F&M Poll found Trump at 24 percent, Cruz 14 percent, Rubio 11 percent and Pennsylvania’s own Rick Santorum at 1 percent.
A copy of the F&M Poll is available online.
