PA Governor Goes After Pollster

09.01.14 |

Governor Tom Corbett's campaign went after a top Pennsylvania pollster over the release of a poll showing the Republican incumbent trailing challenger Tom Wolf by 25 points. Campaign manager Mike Barley said last week’s release from the Center for Opinion Research at Franklin & Marshall College skewed results toward Democrats. On Twitter Thursday night, Barley did not mince words accusing pollster G. Terry Madonna that he was unfairly influencing the election with bad polls. The poll takes into account the 12.7 percent registration edge Democrats have in the state, Barley said, an edge unlikely to be reflected in turnout on Election Day.
