2 New Polls, 2 New Approval Ratings for Malloy: 20% and 23%

Morning Consult released its quarterly iteration of most and least popular governors on Wednesday, and Quinnipiac released a Connecticut-focused poll.

Somewhere between one in five and one in four voters in Connecticut approve of the job Dan Malloy is doing as governor, according to two new polls out Wednesday morning.

Morning Consult released its quarterly iteration of most and least popular governors in America, and for the second-straight quarter Malloy finished the second-least popular governor. Here are the key numbers:

  • Approval rating: 20 percent; second-lowest behind Gov. Mary Fallin (R-OK; 17 percent)
  • Disapproval rating: 70 percent; second-highest behind Fallin (75 percent)
  • Net approval rating: -50, second-worst behind Fallin (-58)

Quinnipiac, meanwhile, polled on a number of questions, but found Malloy in slightly better shape than Morning Consult did.

  • Approval rating: 23 percent, two points worse than Quinnipiac’s August poll (25 percent)
  • Disapproval rating: 69 percent, two points worse than Quinnpiac’s August poll (67 percent)
  • Net approval rating: -46, four points worse than Quinnipiac’s August poll (-42)

Malloy has three months left in office.
