POLL: How's Malloy Doing?

The governor's approval rating hits a high, but it's a tie with those who disapprove. What do you think?

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's approval rating is at a high, and yet it is not all good news for the Democrat.

The poll released Wednesday shows that while 44 percent think the former mayor of Stamford is doing a good job as governor, it is almost even with those who disapprove of the job he is doing — 45 percent.

What do you think of the job the governor is doing? Take our poll and add your thoughts in the comments.

Malloy is doing a horrible job, he spends more than he saves. The only reason this guy got into office is because Obama told the people of Bridgeport to vote for him.

If he's doing such a great job why are we paying the highest taxes in the nation? He killed Stamford now he's working on killing Connecticut. Maybe he should try his hand at president !

At least the Patch gives facts, The Stamford ADvocate seems to be in bed with Malloy.

there is a wall street journal article out , that commends the rhode island treasurer for taking on the unions. IN it, she basically says, I am for helping people, but if the unions and their pensions take all of the money, I cant help the people who need help. Politicians know where their bread is buttered, and its no different with Malloy. What would be nice , is if one day, these Democrats actually did the right thing by everyone-and didnt USE the poor and pander to the Unions and did what was right, instead of what it takes to get reelected. The media loves this guy--he gives 25 mio to UBS to 'save jobs." If this was a Republican it would be portrayed by the same media types as " giving kickbacks to their rich banker buddies." We need better government, and we need less of an agenda by our reporters and editors.

Malloy is unique in his ability to turn off members of both parties.

Come on down to Fairfield and wave goodbye to the financials flocking out of state. Malloy's policies are pushing them out and Blumenthal falling in with the President's asanine and childish mocking of the industry (which comes out anytime he has a microphone in his face, which is often) makes the decision easy for them. There are many fine CT residents employed by financials, the state gets millions in revenue from them and the significant majority of them are awesome people trying to do great things. It's sad how these drones have fallen lockstep in with Obama's class warfare -- try waging class warfare when the financials are gone and a former receptinist, accountant or office manager are trying to put food I their family's table. Sad.

Horrible job. Ruining CT. What did he win by like 10 votes unfortunately? Educational "transformation" bill? Retroactive increased income taxes...Thanks from a middle class person whose CT taxes doubled.....death penalty abolished. What next? He scares me!
