#ByeByeTom: Tom Corbett’s Favorability Polling Still Stuck in GWB Land

Favorability stuck at 30%?

What’s that?  George W. Bush?

No, that’s Governor Tom Corbett’s favorability rating and it’s still stuck somewhere in GWB land.  The Robert Morris University poll reads:

As Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett prepares for a re-election campaign against Democrat Tom Wolf, barely 30% of likely voters have a favorable opinion of the governor, according to the most recent poll by the Robert Morris University Polling Institute Powered by Trib Total Media.

The Republican governor’s favorability rating in the RMU poll, conducted May 6-13, was 30.8%, virtually unchanged since the university’s previous poll, in February, when 29.4% of respondents said they had a favorable impression of Corbett.

“Likely voters in Pennsylvania continue to have a poor impression of Gov. Corbett. This is true across the demographic categories of gender, age, and martial status,” said RMU political scientist Philip Harold, the associate dean of the School of Education and Social Sciences

And here’s the best part.  Tom Corbett is even losing ground with the Fox News Demo…

More bad news for the governor: In 2010, he won senior citizens by a margin of 63% to 37%. But in the RMU poll, senior citizens now have an unfavorable impression of Corbett by a margin of 57-37. Corbett has lost ground since February, when 48% of seniors responded that they have an unfavorable impression of Corbett

It’s only a few more agonizing months, but #ByeByeTom
