Pennsylvania voters haven't given Gov. Corbett much of a honeymoon period, a new poll shows.
Not even three full months into his four-year term, Corbett's approval rating is at a mere 34 percent - the same low rating that former Gov. Ed Rendell had as he was wrapping up his second and last term last year, according to a survey released today by the Democrat-leaning Public Policy Polling.
The poll also found that if the election for governor had taken place today, Democrat Dan Onorato, who Corbett trounced last fall, would win the rematch 49-to-44 percent.
“Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin all had extremely unpopular Democratic governors a year ago at this time,” said Dean Debnam, Public Policy Polling's president, noting that Rendell was one of the least popular governors in the country heading into last fall's election.
