Pennsylvanians’ Favorite Politician: ‘Not Sure’

From Public Policy Polling:

[We asked], between your state’s Governor and two Senators who’s your favorite politician in the state?

Casey’s the choice of 31% followed by Ed Rendell at 14% and Arlen Specter at 11%. 44% don’t state a preference, likely a reflection of their being no Republican politicians to choose from. Casey is easily the top choice of Democrats, 36-20 over Rendell, and Republicans, 29-7 over both Specter and Rendell.

Does anyone else find it striking that Bob Casey — the most popular politician — garners only 31 percent? Pennsylvanians prefer no one by 13 more points.

As the saying goes, the opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference.
