Malloy Moves Up! … From #3 to #2 Least Popular Governor in America

At least he's moving up in something?

Thought Gov. Dan Malloy (D-Conn.) couldn’t achieve something? Think again!

He has managed to move up in the rankings on a major list … from #3 to #2 least popular governor in the nation, according to Morning Consult.

In July, Reclaim Connecticut brought you the news that Malloy was the third-least popular governor in America, with 64 percent of Connecticut voters disapproving of his job performance (only 29 percent approved).

Well, the October numbers are even worse for Malloy. His disapproval numbers shot up four points, from 64 percent to 68 percent. His approval numbers plummeted six points, from 29 percent to 23 percent.

His net disapproval, meanwhile, is good enough to make him the second-least popular governor in America, behind only scandal-ridden Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.).

Malloy leapfrogged Gov. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), who recently blew a massive hole in his state’s budget.

Malloy’s approval rating is the second-lowest in the nation (behind Christie), and his disapproval rating is the second-highest (behind Christie).

Also of note: only nine percent of Connecticut voters don’t know how they feel about Malloy – the fourth-lowest total in the nation – meaning Connecticut voters know fully where they stand on the outgoing governor.
