Five months ahead of the general election, a new survey from Franklin and Marshall College shows Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf with a considerable lead over Republican challenger Scott Wagner.
F&M pollster Terry Madonna said in order to gage a governor’s likely reelection success, he often pits them against former incumbents.
At an equivalent point in his first term, former Democratic Governor Ed Rendell, who won reelection, was about even with Wolf.
Tom Corbett, a Republican who didn’t get a second term, polled well below.
