Swann Has His Work Cut Out for Him
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 3:05 pm

Via the AP: Pa. Gov. Rendell Leads Challenger Swann

The Quinnipiac University poll showed Rendell leading Swann 48 percent to 36 percent. The poll numbers are consistent with recent polling by the Connecticut-based university: Rendell led in February 2005 by 50 percent to 34 percent, and in December by 48 percent to 35 percent.

Independent voters preferred Rendell over Swann, 49 percent to 31 percent. Rendell was more popular among Democrats, 74 percent of whom supported him, than Swann was among Republicans, who had 64 percent support. Rendell also scored higher with Republicans, at 22 percent, than Swann did with Democrats, at 15 percent.

Republicans were divided over whether Swann had the “right kind” of experience to be governor — 32 percent said he did not, versus 31 percent who said he did. However, only 10 percent of Republicans said they would vote against Swann because he has never held public office.

The poll surveyed 1,045 registered Pennsylvania voters by telephone and had a sampling margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

If I were Rendell, I’d be feeling pretty good about my chances for re-election.

  1. Quinnipiac’s results are way off those of Strategic Vision, Zogby, and Rasmussen, all of which show the race as a virtual dead heat at this point. The last three all use different methodologies, yet all achieved very similar results.

  2. I’m not buying this ‘poll’. Quinnipiac overstated Rendell’s lead in his last election by 13 or 14 points, and in looking at name recognition for Swann, it shows no movement at all. How the heck is that possible with his Super Bowl appearance, the Hall of Fame induction, and the Steelers win? No, I think this poll is as worthless as the paper it was printed on….

  3. If that’s true, than its a shame - PA needs to change course every once in a while.

    Annoying, really. If there was ever a governor who could be outed by a good candidate, its Rendell.
