Malloy approval ratings remain low

Only 36 percent of state voters approve of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s job performance, a new poll says, and 52 percent would vote for his 2010 Republican rival, Tom Foley, if they had it to do over again.

The Malloy approval ratings reported by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic company, were even lower than the 41 percent found by the Quinnipiac Poll earlier this month.

Voters say they approve of Sen. Richard Blumenthal’s job performance by a 52 percent to 34 percent margin. Outgoing Sen. Joseph Lieberman gets a 39 percent approval rating, with 48 percent disapproving.

PPP surveyed 592 Connecticut voters through an automated telephone poll from September 22nd to 25th. The margin of error for the survey is +/-4 percentage points.
