Quinnipiac Poll: Wolf At Highest Approval Score Since Being Elected - 54 Percent

Pennsylvania voters approve 54 - 33 percent of the job Gov. Tom Wolf is doing, his highest score since he was elected, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released May 16.   This is Gov. Wolf's first positive approval rating since a 45 - 39 percent score in an August 25, 2015 Quinnipiac Poll.
Pennsylvania voters approve 48 - 34 percent of the job Sen. Robert Casey Jr. is doing. Sen. Pat Toomey gets a mixed score as 37 percent approve and 41 percent disapprove.
66 percent said they are very or somewhat satisfied with the way things are going in Pennsylvania today, 33 percent not so much.
"Pennsylvanians are feeling good about their state and its economy and that seems to be helping Gov. Tom Wolf's job approval rating," said Mary Snow, polling analyst for the Quinnipiac University Poll.
"There's a political divide, though, when it comes to Pennsylvania's two U.S. Senators. Democrat Robert Casey Jr.'s job approval rating sits just below 50 percent while Republican Pat Toomey fell below 40 percent, marking his lowest score since being elected."
Other issues polled include--
-- Single Payer Health Care: 47 percent no, 43 percent yes
-- Medicare For All: 58 percent yes, 26 percent no
-- Congress should not investigate impeachment charges: 55 percent no, 41 percent yes
