Q Poll: Malloy Strong in Crisis, Weaker on Routine

By Mark Pazniokas

Buoyed by his crisis leadership, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy won a 48 percent to 39 percent job approval rating in a Quinnipiac University poll released today, his highest mark since becoming governor in January 2011.

Malloy, 57, the first Democratic governor in 20 years, still faces considerable political challenges as he looks to re-election in 2014, and today’s poll offers more encouragement than discouragement to Republican challengers.

More than 75 percent of voters approve of Malloy’s response to the Newtown shooting, the February blizzard and Hurricane Sandy, but they disapprove of how he has handled pocketbook issues that can influence elections.

“Connecticut voters say Gov. Dannel Malloy is a good man to have in a crisis and give him very high grades for his response to recent crises in the state,” said Douglas Schwartz, director of the poll.  “On the day-to-day issues of governing, such as budget, taxes and the economy, he gets failing grades.”
