Poll: Corbett's approval rating slumps a bit

HAMDEN, Conn. - A new poll shows Gov. Tom Corbett's approval rating has slumped in recent months.

The survey by Quinnipiac University shows 41% of Pennsylvania voters approve of the job Corbett is doing, the same proportion that holds the opposite viewpoint.

Quinnipiac spokesman Tim Malloy said the rating is Corbett's lowest since June, showing that his "honeymoon" period as a new governor is over and possibly reflecting budget cuts.

The survey of 1,256 voters shows 49% dislike Corbett's handling of the state budget and 53% disapprove of the deep cuts in state aid he advocates for Pennsylvania's public universities.

The telephone survey was conducted from March 7 to March 12. It has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
