Margins of Victory in Pennsylvania Counties

Even though Gov. Corbett won 43 counties, almost twice as many as Tom Wolf, his defeat was sealed by Wolf’s huge margins of victory in voter-rich Southeastern Pennsylvania. Wolf won by over 386,000 votes in the five-county Philadelphia area, including a margin of 281,115 votes in heavily Democratic Philadelphia. In the 62 other counties in the state, Corbett had a 48,000-vote edge. Corbett’s highest margin was in Lancaster County, which he won by 25,508 votes.
