Poll: Wolf 41%, Casey 38%, Trump 37%, Marijuana 56 Percent

A new Franklin & Marshall Poll reported Thursday shows Gov. Wolf’s approval rating stands at 41 percent, an increase of 3 percentage points from February.   This is no worse than Gov. Rendell’s in 2006 when he won re-election.  Gov. Ridge still has the highest approval rating at this point in his term of over 60 percent.

Of the most important issues facing Pennsylvania, those polled said: 22 percent government and politicians, 17 percent education, 12 percent taxes, 8 percent unemployment, 8 percent healthcare and insurance, 5 percent crime, drugs, violence and guns, 4 percent roads, infrastructure, transportation, 3 percent economy and finances, 3 percent environment, 2 percent social issues, 1 percent energy issues, gasoline prices, 1 percent retaining, attracting businesses, 1 percent immigration and 1 percent senior issues.

U.S. Senator Bob Casey’s rating is up only 1 point to 38 percent.   President Trump’s approval rating rose to 37 percent, up 5 points from February.

56 percent of Pennsylvania voters now support legalization of marijuana, a sharp turnaround from two years ago when 54 percent were opposed and from 2006 when just 22 percent supported legalization.
