In the race for governor, Wolf leads Scott Wagner 52 percent to 28 percent, with 18 percent undecided, the poll found. A previous poll had Wolf leading 51 percent to 32 percent.
Meanwhile, Casey leads Lou Barletta 48 percent to 30 percent in the race for Senate, with 20 percent undecided. A previous poll had Casey, who is seeking a third term, leading 48 percent to 29 percent.
