Malloy’s Approval Ratings Down

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A new survey shows many Connecticut voters may like Gov. Dannel P. Malloy as a person, but they’re not happy with the job he’s doing running the state.

The poll, released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University, shows 47 percent of registered voters like Malloy as a person, regardless of how they feel about the Democrat’s policies. Seventeen percent don’t like Malloy and 37 percent said they don’t know enough to form an opinion.

The same poll showed 44 percent of registered voters disapprove of the job that he’s doing, while 37 percent approve. In March, Quinnipiac found 45 percent disapproved of the job Malloy was doing, compared to 44 percent who approved.

The survey of 1,745 voters has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.4 percentage points.
