(Harrisburg) -- A new poll shows Democratic nominee Tom Wolf leading Republican incumbent Tom Corbett by 20 points in Pennsylvania's gubernatorial campaign.

The survey of 1,308 Pennsylvania voters released today by Connecticut-based Quinnipiac University shows Wolf backed by 53 percent and Corbett with 33 percent.

Eleven percent were undecided.

The margin is almost identical to Wolf's 52-to-33 percent advantage over Corbett in a hypothetical matchup by Quinnipiac in February. That was months before Wolf won the Democratic nomination with 58 percent of the vote in a four-way primary.

The survey contained little good news for Corbett. Only 29 percent of the respondents say they view him favorably, contrasted with 46 percent who say that about Wolf.

The margin of error for the telephone poll was plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
