Scott Kraus at the Allentown Morning Call has the results of their gubernatorial poll conducted in partnership with Muhlenberg College:

Heading into the home stretch, York businessman Tom Wolf is maintaining the wide lead he built over his fellow Democratic gubernatorial hopefuls with a barrage of early TV ads.

The first statewide poll of the contest in more than a month shows support for Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz and state Treasurer Rob McCord, creeping up, but still trailing Wolf by more than 20 points.

Wolf is the choice of 38 percent of likely Democratic voters in The Morning Call/Muhlenberg College survey, leading Schwartz with 13 percent and McCord, who has 11 percent. Former state environmental secretary Katie McGinty is a distant fourth with 2 percent.

Add in undecided voters who are leaning toward one of the candidates and Wolf comes away with 42 percent, Schwartz 16 percent, McCord 14 percent and McGinty 3 percent.
The number of voters describing themselves as unsure is dwindling, but still at 33 percent.

The most recent statewide poll, conducted by Franklin & Marshall College and The Philadelphia Daily News in late March, had Wolf with 33 percent of the vote to Schwartz’s 7 percent, McCord’s 6 percent and McGinty’s 4 percent, with 46 percent of voters still undecided.

The Muhlenberg College poll of 417 likely Democratic voters has a margin of error of +/-5 percentage points.

With just two and a half weeks left until the May 20th primary, it’s looking more and more inevitable that Wolf will lead the primary pack.
