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.

Mac, are you a Palin clone or a GOP blowhorn? Do you even know what you're spewing? Every sentence you made sounded like cue card talking points of all the GOP pundits on television. You could replace Reindick Prickbush, the RNC chairman! Good luck!

What do you expect from a state that elects Richard "I served IN Vietnam" Blumenthal?

Dear independent voter--- I hope you watched the Presidential debate the other evening, if you did you would realize Obama can't speak one on one or without his teleprompter. He is used to a captive crowd, usually College kids who are easily impressed with his cheerleader type speeches. His snake oil talks lack meaningful facts, but he gets away with it using smiles and charisma. I doubt LEGAL voters are that clueless to reelect a man who has caused more harm to our economy, caused lost jobs, uses class warfare and attacks Christian beliefs. President Obama has treated our only allies with disrespect, while pandering to our enemies. His bypassing the US Constitution and Federal laws, should be a wake up call to any true American, if not I fear for our children's future..
