Published by Andrea Gillhoolley
The May 2013 Franklin & Marshall College Poll of Pennsylvania registered voters finds a majority 58 percent believes the state is “off on the wrong track” and only 25 percent -- one in four -- thinks Gov. Tom Corbett has performed sufficiently well to deserve re-election. The poll also finds fewer registered voters support selling the state-owned liquor stores (47%) than did so in February (53%).

Key Findings
The May 2013 Franklin & Marshall College Poll of Pennsylvania registered voters findsa majority (58%) believes the state is “off on the wrong track” and only one in four (25%)believes Governor Tom Corbett has performed sufficiently well to deserve re-election. The Pollalso finds fewer registered voters support selling the state-owned liquor stores (47%) than did soin February (53%).
Governor Corbett’s Job Performance 
One in four (25%) registered Pennsylvania voters believes Governor Corbett is doing an“excellent” or “good” job as governor, which is similar to the ratings he received in the February2013 Franklin & Marshall College Poll. His job performance ratings are much lower than eitherGovernor Rendell or Governor Ridge at similar points in their first terms (see Figure 1). Two infive (39%) Republicans, one in three (33%) independents, and one in ten (11%) Democrats ratehis performance as “excellent” or “good.” Only one in four (25%) voters believes GovernorCorbett has performed sufficiently well to deserve re-election. Few Democrats (12%) orindependent voters (20%) believe he deserves re-election, but, surprisingly, less than half (46%)of Republicans do.
