It's also not getting any better for Corbett when undecideds are pushed:

While they don't give combined numbers (incl. leaners), the breakdown of leaners would give us an overall result of 56% Wolf and 27% Corbett.

So is this lean D like Sabato says or a toss up like Cook says? I guess we'll split the difference and call it tilt D. Wink

But no really, this is a safe D race now. Time to put aside "muh incumbency" and see reality for what it is. Wolf has a bigger lead than Greg Abbott, Jerry Brown, John Cornyn, Ben Sasse, Dick Durbin, Lindsey Graham...

This race has been over for a long time, the fact that Wolf's margin continues to grow is very telling.

What are the odds of Tom Wolf getting over 60% of the vote at this point?

Overwhelming D.

Pennsylvania can certainly turn on an incumbent in an election -- just think of Rick Sanctimonious in 2006!

Undecideds seem too high for me, but yeah. I don't see how Corbett comes back from this deficit  in two months' time.

Corbett has an equal chance as Beauprez in Colorado.

The polls are skewed, Corbett will win in a landslide.

I can only imagine how disastrous this is for down-ballot races.

I think Wolf wins 62-36 in the end and depressed GOP turnout allows for a couple of state Senate to flip towards the Dems. I think there's a high possibility one chamber flips at this point there will be some type of coattails from all of this.

Why didn't they primary him?

Pennsylvania is a slowly R-trending state, and a super-important one for Republicans in 2016 and beyond.  I don't understand how the GOP let this happen, unless there is some metric out there where Corbett is in better shape than we all think.

This state is still very old fashioned. There's a lot of respect for the establishment and the Governor is truly seen as the head of his respective party. Plus, the Governor's office here is historically strong so a Governor wields incredible influence.

There was plenty of talk about a Corbett primary challenge and an old rival of his was "considering" it. No surprise when it didn't materialize though.

Bruce Castor

Gerlach was talked up but he isn't a historical Corbett rival.

Oh yeah, him.

What do you think it would've been like if it was Wolf v. Castor?
