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...

What Phil said, but to add to that, even though Corbett was/is extremely unpopular with the overall electorate, he still would've been the favorite to crack 50%+1 in his own party's primary.

His ratings amongst Republicans have been weak for awhile. Polls showed something like 45% of Republicans believed he deserved a second term while 40% said he didn't. He might have been the favorite for reasons I mentioned but immense popularity amongst GOP voters isn't one of those reasons.

Oh, I know that. I was just saying that despite his tepid approvals among Republicans, the fact that he still would've been the favorite in the primary probably dissuaded potential challengers from running.
