Mark Critz Continues to Lead Keith Rothfus by Double Digits in New PA-12 Poll

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today released a new Anzalone Liszt Research poll that shows Mark Critz (PA-12) with an 11-point lead over millionaire challenger Keith Rothfus. Critz remains above the critical 50 percent mark as he leads Rothfus 52 to 41 with 7 percent undecided.


Mark Critz’s personal popularity has increased since our last poll, with 40 percent having favorable opinions against just 23 percent unfavorable.  Meanwhile, Keith Rothfus’ popularity has worsened as voters have learned about his support of outsourcing, and he now is net unfavorable (24 fav to 25 unfav). 


“As voters learn more about each candidate, Mark Critz is maintaining his double-digit lead and Keith Rothfus is growing more and more unpopular,” said Josh Schwerin, Northeast Press Secretary at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.  “With about six weeks to go, Keith Rothfus’ support of outsourcing continues to weigh down his candidacy and sink him with Western Pennsylvania voters."
