PA: Gov. Corbett’s low poll numbers not unprecedented

After a year and a half as governor, he already was being mocked by his Harrisburg foes as “One-Term Tom.” How could he possibly get reelected? … The year was 1996, and the governor was Tom Ridge. … In fact, all three of [Tom] Corbett’s predecessors – Ed Rendell, Ridge, and Robert P. Casey – had favorable ratings below 50 percent in their second year. And all won second terms. [cont.]
