F&M Poll: most voters still undecided

More good news for Pat Toomey in today’s Franklin and Marshall College poll. The Republican leads incumbent Arlen Specter 45-31 among likely voters, and has a 41-19 lead over Joe Sestak within the same demographic. There are large chunks of undecided voters, though, and both Toomey and Sestak still have low state-wide name recognition. Specter’s job approval ratings remain low, with only 29 percent of respondents saying he deserves another term.
The poll’s take on the gubernatorial race paints the same picture last month’s Quinnipiac survey did — Dan Onorato and Tom Corbett lead their respective fields, but the vast majority of voters still haven’t made up their minds, and most don’t even know who’s running.
Onorato tops the Democrats with ten percent, but 72 percent of Democratic respondents are undecided. Corbett has a 23-5 lead over Sam Rohrer, but seven in ten GOP voters still don’t have a preference. Unsurprisingly, the economy is the most important issue for voters — though I was surprised that the second-most important issue is “don’t know.”
