Pennsylvanians Do Not Like Tom Corbett (latest Quinnipiac numbers)

"Halfway through his term, Mr. Corbett received a negative grade in the latest Quinnipiac University poll. Voters disapprove of the way the governor is doing his job, 42 to 36 percent. It is a significant drop from a 40 to 38 percent approval rating Nov. 15."

"It's halftime in Gov. Tom Corbett's first term, and if he were running a football team instead of a state, he'd fire his offensive coordinator," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "Gov. Corbett has hit the 50 percent approval rating only once so far, mainly because of his bad grades from women."

"Women polled disapprove of Mr. Corbett's job by 45 to 31 percent, though men approve 41 to 37 percent. Republicans approve by a lukewarm 52 to 25 percent, while Democrats disapprove, 57 to 24 percent and 39 to 36 percent among independents."

"Voters said by 51 to 31 percent -- including 54 to 24 percent among women and 48 to 38 percent among men -- that Mr. Corbett does not deserve to be reelected. Only 49 percent of Republicans say Corbett deserves to be reelected."

1. Pennsylvania Republican Legislators: Take Note!

We're paying attention to the dirty tricks that you have embraced right along with Tom Corbett. We disapprove of him, and we disapprove of you.

5. They've pushed all of Corbett's dirty tricks.

Now, they're trying to rig the system by changing Pennsylvania's electoral vote allocation.

4. He doesn't even have the support of the majority of Republicans.

Only 49% of Republicans say that Corbett deserves to be re-elected.
