Pennsylvania Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf has opened up a 22-point lead over Republican incumbent Gov. Tom Corbett, according to a new poll released Wednesday.


Wolf, the York County businessman who blew through a crowded Democratic primary, holds a 47-percent-to-25-percent lead over Corbett, with 27 percent indicating they're unsure of who to vote for. A mere 26 percent of voters surveyed believe Corbett has performed well enough to deserve re-election.


The Franklin & Marshall College poll indicates more bad news for Corbett. Twenty-two percent of voters say education is their top priority when voting for governor. Corbett, when he first took office in 2011, slashed the education budget because of hold-over funds that were set to disappear, leaving the perception that he had initiated the cuts. Corbett has never been able to recover in the polls from those cuts.


Other findings from the poll include an increased support for medical marijuana. Eighty-four percent of voters favor allowing the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes, up from 81 percent earlier this year.Scissors-32x32.png
