Wolf ahead in latest Quinnipiac University Governor’s Race Poll
Pennsylvania likely voters say businessman Tom Wolf, the Democratic challenger for governor, is better than Republican Gov. Tom Corbett on every measure, especially handling the top issues of the economy/jobs and education, and give him an overwhelming 59 – 35 percent lead eight weeks before Election Day, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
Wolf leads 91 – 7 percent among Democrats and 53 – 39 percent among independent voters, while Gov. Corbett has a lackluster 66 – 28 percent lead among Republicans, the independent Quinnipiac University poll finds.

Corbett is the bigger issue in the campaign, as 51 percent of Wolf backers say their vote is mainly against the incumbent while 39 percent say they are voting mainly for the Democrat.
Among Corbett backers, 62 percent say their vote is mainly pro-Corbett, while 30 percent say
they are mainly anti-Wolf.
