New Poll: Gov. Wolf’s Approval Rating At 47 Percent, Higher Than In April

A new Qunnipiac University poll released Monday found Gov. Wolf had an approval rating of 47 percent, 3 points higher than the same poll in April.
A Franklin & Marshall poll last week had Wolf at 39 percent.
"Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf prolongs the honeymoon with job approval numbers his Republican predecessor, Tom Corbett, could only have dreamed of,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
Sen. Toomey
In a rematch of the 2010 U.S. Senate race in the Keystone State, the Quinnipiac poll found Republican incumbent Sen. Pat Toomey leads possible Democratic challenger Joe Sestak 47 - 36 percent.  The F&M poll had them at 35 to 31 percent.
Toomey tops another Democrat, Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski 52 - 28 percent. The F&M poll had them at 34 to 23 percent.
Toomey has a 51 - 28 percent job approval rating and a 47 - 24 percent favorability rating. His possible challengers are largely unknown as 58 percent of voters haven't heard enough about Sestak to form an opinion of him, and 85 percent haven't heard enough about Pawlowski.
