A Wesleyan SurveyLab CT Poll released last week found that forty percent of those surveyed believe the state’s economy has worsened in the past 12 months, while 32% said it’s about the same and 28% see improvement.
Connecticut's gross domestic product has grown at an annualized rate of 1.8% over the past five years, placing it 43rd among all states in growth.

A survey of 611 Connecticut voters was conducted from April 3 to 17 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.13%.
