Election 2010: Pennsylvania Governor (Pennsylvania Governor: Corbett 49%(R), Onorato 36%(D))
Rasmussen ^ | May 21, 2010 | Rasmussen

Republican State Attorney General Tom Corbett is near the critical 50% mark in his race against Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato for governor of Pennsylvania.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Pennsylvania, taken Wednesday night, finds Corbett earning 49% support to Onorato’s 36%. Four percent (4%) prefer another candidate in the race, and 10% remain undecided.

Both men won their parties’ respective primaries on Tuesday.

Last month, Corbett posted a 45% to 36% lead over Onorato in a hypothetical match-up.

In surveys stretching back to December, Corbett, who has long been viewed as the likely GOP nominee, has earned 44% to 52% of the vote in match-ups with Onorato. Support for the Democrat, in turn, has risen from 28% in December to to a high of 36% in April.

Onorato won Tuesday’s Democratic Primary with 44% of the vote in a four-way race. Corbett received 69% of the vote in a GOP Primary contest with State Representative Sam Rohrer.

Democratic Congressman Joe Sestak’s victory over longtime Senator Arlen Specter for his party’s nomination Tuesday appears to have given him a bounce in support in Pennsylvania’s general election race for the U.S. Senate. Sestak leads Republican nominee Pat Toomey 46% to 42%.

Eighty-five percent (85%) of Pennsylvania Republicans now support Corbett, while 71% of Democrats back Onorato. Voters not affiliated with either party prefer the Republican by nearly five-to-one.

In Pennsylvania you cannot rely on a 50% margin, 60% and you might stand a chance.

Precisely. I am sick of hearing about pa polls showing pubbies anywhere near a lead. Pa always reverts back to the corrupt hand that feeds it. I think it is all the shuffleboarders getting spooked about social security.

Hopefully we in Pa can get some action on tougher immigration laws with a Republican governor.

When you see the deficit spiraling out of any semblance of responsibility, you have to wonder if the party of big spending is going to continue to be able to count on fixed-income seniors for support. Inflation is the threat, and the gray-haired among us lived through the Carter Administration.

Plenty of adults show up at a Tea Party . . .
