A Really Low Disapproval Rating . . . for a Governor Starting Out

Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett is still enjoying a political honeymoon, Quinnipiac finds:

Although the largest share of Pennsylvania registered voters, 50 percent, don’t yet have an opinion of Gov. Tom Corbett’s job performance, the new governor gets a 39 – 11 percent approval rating from those who do have an opinion, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. But by a 53 – 33 percent margin, voters don’t believe Gov. Corbett can keep his promise to balance the budget without raising taxes, similar to a 55 – 31 percent finding in a December survey by the independent Quinnipiac University.
