FreedomWorks Releases Survey Results on Pennsylvania Voters Ahead of 2022 Midterms

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A recent survey conducted in partnership with Scott Rasmussen indicates that the 2022 races in Pennsylvania are competitive, with Republicans currently holding an edge over Democrats in the U.S. Senate and governor’s races. The survey also reveals crucial information about where PA voters stand on the hot button issues of election integrity and education.

On the PA races and approval of President Biden:

  • On the generic ballot for U.S. Senate, Republicans have a 43 to 42 percent edge over Democrats

  • On the generic ballot for governor, Republicans are up 43 to 40 percent

  • Only 23 percent strongly approve of Biden’s performance

On education:

  • 73 percent of school-aged parents are more likely to support candidates who prioritize school choice

  • 74 percent want America’s noble ideals, not critical race theory, taught in schools

  • 88 percent believe in curriculum transparency

On election integrity:

  • 90 percent agree that it should be easy to vote and hard to cheat

  • 70 percent support voter ID requirements at the polls

  • 76 percent believe all mail-ballots should be received by Election Day

(Methodology: Rasmussen surveyed 1,000 Pennsylvania voters between September 21 and September 26, 2021. He oversampled the following crucial counties: Allegheny, Bucks, Chester, Lackawanna, Leigh, and Northampton.)

Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Pennsylvania voters are clearly fed up with failed Democratic leadership both in their state and on the national stage. When it comes to government policies, it is clear that Pennsylvania voters value freedom and transparency above all else. Unfortunately, these guiding principles are severely lacking in the current administration and Democratic leaders who ally themselves with it, including Pennsylvania’s own governor, Tom Wolf.

“If Pennsylvania goes, so goes the nation. Republicans need to stay disciplined and deliberate with their messaging and focus on the winning issues of education and election integrity to continue to remind voters that Democrats have abandoned them. By prioritizing parents’ say in their child’s education and focusing on forward-looking election legislation intended to restore the confidence of voters from both sides of the aisle, Pennsylvania can and will go red in 2022.”
