Quinnipiac University released a new poll today dealing with a number of Connecticut issues currently being discussed in the legislature. The pollsters surveyed 1,622 registered voters across the state.

On the issue of legalizing medical marijuana, voters are 68-27 percent in favor of the idea. A smaller margin said they’re for expanding Connecticut’s liquor laws, including Sunday sales. The percentage there was 54-42 percent in support. A committee voted yesterday approving that measure.

As for the proposal to abolish the death penalty, there’s overwhelming support to leave it as is, with those surveyed voting 62-31 percent in favor of keeping the death penalty.

Another issue discussed was education reform. Fifty-four percent say they support Governor Dannel Malloy’s proposal to limit teacher tenure.

And as for Governor Malloy, he came in with his best approval rating ever, an almost even 44-45 percent, with just a slight edge to disapproval.

The poll was conducted from March 14 to 19 and has a margin of error of +/- 2.4 percentage points.

    The favorable vote for legalizing medical marijuana tells you all you need to know about the 1622 who were polled. There is misleading information in the medical marijuana debate, but that’s how it might pass in the legislature; i.e. ignorance by legislators. Paraphrasing Pelosi; ” we can read the bill after we pass it.”

    Governor Mumblloy doesn’t have a favorable rating, as the result was 44-45, with a +/- 2.4% MOE. That’s neutral, not favorable or unfavorable. Maybe “Q” should repeat the poll after we all prepare and file our tax returns next month? What say you, Q?
