Governor Tom Corbett’s approval rating is at its lowest point ever, according to the results of a new Franklin & Marshall poll. 

Politics PA reports that the F&M poll found that 17 percent of respondents think Corbett is doing a good/excellent job, while 69 percent think it’s time for a new governor.

“No demographic or geographic category gave Corbett positive marks,” the Politics PA report said. “His worst region was Allegheny County, his home turf, which gave him just 11 percent job approval while 85 percent gave him fair or poor marks.”

How do you think Corbett is doing? Tell us in the comments.

Mr. Catalano, like I've said before, God never promised you a rose garden. Don't know how the false ideal that the US is the promised land got started, I guess it was the Puritans who ironically were trying to get away from the legalism they thought was the Roman Catholic Church. It never was a shining beacon and never will be. The US is part of the world. The only difference is that the US founders had the notion that no one should legislate religious beliefs. Smart men.

Btw, Mr. Catalano, what's wrong with the agendas you mentioned? Do you not agree that they have those rights under our constitution even if those aren't your beliefs?

Thomas, "One" would like you to be a representative of the tribe of elders, and, "One" wonders what made you sophomoric of mind. While my "hate" is debatable, my "envy" is not. I have none. Rather, it is your impoverished, small world view, your lack of cultural education and sophistication, that keeps you forever stunted, bogeying on the third hole of your eternal golf course. Your mind was too small to "waste". Congratulations on your constipated life. You earned it, and, you express it very well.

Sorry pal, even though you consider someone like me small, or just another lost soul, as you put it. I have lived a very full and content life and am very proud of what I have accomplished. Insult after Insult after insult, is all you have. It defines you. It's your mirror. Nice try Tin cup.
