Poll Shows Obama With Big Lead in CT, Malloy Unpopular

The president has a wide lead over Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Also, people surveyed rank Gov. Dannel P. Malloy as one of the most unpopular governors in the nation.

Public Policy Polling says that Connecticut will go to Obama in the general election, but the president’s popularity in the state has dropped dramatically since he was elected.  

The president has a 54-41 lead, but won the state in 2008 by 28 points. A June Quinnipiac Poll showed Obama with a similar 50-38 lead. 

The survey asked about Connecticut’s other politicians, and some fared better than others. U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal remains popular, with a 53 percent approval rating. Outgoing U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman has a 40 percent approval rating, while 40 percent also disapprove.

Malloy’s prospects appeared much more bleak with a mere 32 percent approval rating. The poll shows Malloy trailing a generic Republican opponent by  a 42-38 margin should he choose to run again in 2014.

I make sense, you just don't understand it or choose not to.

You said George Bush is not president...I never said he currently was. I clearly stated his past has left remnants in Obama's first term. Before you start harping on politics, learn to form and present concise thoughts.

Mason, You should google George H W Bush and find out when he was president. And if there was a Republican in the White House with the conditions that exist today the mainstream liberal media would lead the way to impeachment. Do what the Doctors tell you and take your medications.
