As we await more updates on the state budget talks -- the governor gave lawmakers a new spending figure, they're working out a response before this afternoon's closed-door meeting -- here's what Gov. Tom Corbett had to say about his slumping poll numbers.
Yesterday's Quinnipiac University poll showed voters viewing him more negatively than at any point in his nearly 1 1/2 years in office.
In that survey, 47 percent said they disapprove of his job performance and 36 percent are supportive, with the largest disapproval rating coming in Allegheny County at 60 percent.
But asked about those plummeting numbers during a bill-signing in Harrisburg, the governor shrugged them off.
“The polls now - I don’t look at the polls,” Corbett said. “If I was looking at the polls, I wouldn’t be doing some of the things I’m doing, would I?”
