Spending Political Capital To Balance Budgets

March 14, 2011
Meanwhile, in Connecticut, Malloy is also struggling to gain his footing. Only 35 percent of Connecticut voters approve of the job he is doing, according to the Quinnipiac poll, while 40 percent disapprove. Malloy has proposed a budget in his state that combines tax increases and spending cuts in an effort to close that state's budget shortfall. But two-thirds of Connecticut voters think his budget increases taxes too much, according to the Quinnipiac poll, and a majority of voters (56 percent) says Malloy's budget is unfair to people like them. Malloy and Kasich join Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) as unpopular rookies; a poll conducted in late Feb. and early March for the right-leaning Wisconsin Policy Research Institute showed that 54 percent of Wisconsinites disapproved of Walker. Still, a bad start does not necessarily doom a governor's term; despite his anemic approval rating, 55% of Connecticut voters told Quinnipiac they were optimistic about the next four years with Malloy as governor. The Ohio Poll was conducted from March 1-9. A total of 908 Ohio adults were surveyed; results carry a margin of error of +/- 3.3%. The Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,693 Connecticut voters from March 1-7, for a margin of error of +/- 2.4%.
