Poll: Majority of PA Voters Oppose Gov. Corbett’s Election Rigging Scheme

A new Quinnipiac University poll finds solid opposition to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett’s (R) plan to rig the 2012 presidential election by giving away as many as a dozen of the states’ electoral votes to the Republican candidate. Fifty-two percent of Pennsylvania voters oppose Corbett’s vote-rigging plan, while only 40 percent support it. Perhaps even more significantly, the state’s voters overwhelmingly understand — by a 57 percent to 32 percent margin — that Corbett’s proposal is intended to improve the GOP’s chances in the presidential election and not to improve the state’s electoral process.
