Although a large number of voters apparently remain undecided, a new poll shows that York County businessman Tom Wolf still holds a large lead over his Democratic primary opponents.

The Franklin and Marshall College poll shows 46 percent of those surveyed are still unsure for whom they will vote in the May 20 primary.

33 percent of the respondents to the survey said they would vote for Wolf.  Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz from Montgomery County (7 percent), state Treasurer Rob McCord from Montgomery County (6 percent) and former DEP Secretary Katie McGinty from Chester County (4 percent) all remain in single digits in a field which has been whittled down to four candidates.

Asked by Radio PA News for a possible explanation for Wolf’s lead, poll director Dr. G. Terry Madonna said Wolf’s radio and television commercials have ruled the airwaves for about a month, and his opponents’ ads have not seemed to make a dent in his lead in the poll.
