“It’s a traffic nightmare that never ends for Governor Christie,” says Maurice Carroll, of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
The latest Quinnipiac University poll shows a slight narrowing: Tom Wolf leading incumbent Tom Corbett now by just 17 points, down from 20 points a month ago.

Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, was at a loss today to fully explain why Corbett is so vulnerable.

Democrat Tom Wolfe has jumped into the lead in the primary race for governor, according to a poll out Wednesday. Meantime, Republican incumbent Tom Corbett continues a downward slide in the poll.
Bottom line: his image has been dinged but not totaled.
