Poll: 59% Support, Somewhat Support Wolf Tax Plans

A new Franklin & Marshall Poll released Wednesday shows 59 percent of voters support or somewhat support Gov. Wolf’s plan to increase the Sales and Personal Income Taxes and a new natural gas severance tax for lower school property taxes and more education funding.  
Only 1 percent of voters supported prioritizing liquor privatization.
Wolf’s personal approval rating dropped slightly from 40 percent in October to 38 percent now.  That’s much lower than Gov. Ridge and lower than Gov. Rendell at this point in their terms, but higher than Gov. Corbett.
The same poll found a 19 percent approval rating for Attorney General Kane and had U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey beating challenger Joe Sestak 34 to 29 percent.
