In our November 2013 survey, Wolf was in last place at a mere 5%.  He now leads the field with 40% of the total vote.  

Wolf’s name identification in November was 23% among likely Democratic primary voters.  It is now 65%.  

His image ratio was 11% favorable-to-11% unfavorable.  It is now 58% favorable-to-6% unfavorable.  

That’s 42% bump in name identification and a 52% gain in image rating.

What kind of ads did he air to achieve those numbers ?

Huh

Excellent if true. He's actually a Democrat I can get behind.

Why do you support him? I rarely watch TV so I don't know anything about him.

Good to see the Republican Jack Wagner in single digits though. PPP's previous poll showed him doing a little bit too well for comfort.

I'm not surprised. I'm a limited tv watcher but he's been airing 3-4 ads nonstop the last few months or so. I've not seen anything for anyone else. I imagine a lot of people not yet invested in the race are settling on him.

The ad he seems to air most often is a biographical one with his entire family extolling his virtues. I find it pretty nice as far as puff pieces go.

Weirdly enough I support the guy who's to the left of Wolf.

But Snowstalker supports Wolf. So he's probably a farleftist I guess?

Don't try to understand Snowstalker's political positions.


Anyway, I personally have no opinion on the primary. I don't like Wagner, but the rest are acceptable to me and far better than Corbett.

This August 2013 piece I just read made me interested in supporting his candidacy: http://articles.philly.com/2013-08-27/news/41459377_1_corporate-net-income-tax-york-county-high-speed-rail


From this month:

He has trouble with labor

Another interesting piece

Kathleen Kane also had a 'labor problem' because of her husbands trucking company but it didn't matter at all. I think the profit sharing thing would appeal to a lot of blue collar/union type voters. All in all he's a solid candidate with an impressive background who would crush Corbett in November.

Agreed.  He sounds like a stand-up guy and I really hope he gets the nomination.

After doing some research on Wolf, he seems like a decent guy and a good candidate. The one thing that gives me reservations is that it seems like he's buying the nomination.

To be fair, if you're rich and want to be involved in politics, how do you not "buy the nomination"?

He's got a beard, so I'm supporting him. Seriously, how many governors out there have facial hear? Like 3/50.

From a quick internet search, it looks like you're right, unless Jerry Brown decided to grow a beard in the past few months or something like that.

Btw, Quinnipiac says they'll be releasing a poll on this race in about 5 hours:
