Quinnipiac Poll: Kane--Resign, Wolf--OK, Toomey Leads, Casey--OK

A new Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday found Pennsylvania voters think indicted Attorney General Kathleen Kane should resign by a margin of 49 to 27 percent.
Democrats are divided 39 - 37 percent on whether Kane should resign while Republicans say 60 - 16 percent that she should go and independent voters agree 44 - 32 percent. Men favor resignation 51 - 27 percent and women say 46 - 27 percent that Kane should quit.
The Franklin & Marshall Poll this week found 46 percent of register voters thought Kane should resign.
Gov. Tom Wolf gets a 45 - 39 percent approval rating.  In June, the same poll found voters approved of Wolf’s performance 47 to 32 percent.
The F&M poll found a 39 percent approval rating for Wolf.
Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey leads Democratic challenger Joe Sestak 48 - 33 percent. Men back Toomey 57 - 29 percent. Women are divided, with 40 percent for Toomey and 37 percent for Sestak.
Toomey leads Katie McGinty, former chief of staff to Gov. Wolf, 48 - 32 percent, with men for Toomey 56 - 26 percent. Women are divided with 40 for Toomey and 38 percent for McGinty. (The F&M Poll Thursday generally found lower numbers in comparing the races, but about the same spread.)
Toomey gets a 49 - 26 percent job approval rating and a 46 - 23 percent favorability rating. For Sestak, 61 percent don't know enough to form an opinion and 74 percent don't know enough about McGinty.
U.S. Sen. Robert Casey Jr. gets a 51 - 25 percent approval rating.
