Despite Conflicting Claims, It’s Unclear Who’s Really Ahead In GOP Primary

HARRISBURG, PA (WSKG) — In the midst of releasing negative, personal campaign ads, GOP gubernatorial candidates Paul Mango and Scott Wagner are also clashing over their own poll numbers. However, too little information is ultimately available to assess where the primary race stands with potential voters. Wagner recently released results from an internal poll by the conservative research firm McLaughlin and Associates, showing he holds a nearly 27-point lead. Mango countered with surveys that show a closer race, including one from Susquehanna Polling and Research that had Wagner with just a three-point lead. The full results aren’t public.
