Amazing that do nothing Blumy can sucker 49% into thinking he is doing a good job. Just proves if you do nothing you can coast as he;s been doing for years. Malloy is a mess. Walks into a deficit spending 900 million more for an unneeded busway we can't afford, makes no cuts to the size of govt, raises taxes and expects everyone to say he is doing a great job.

Who did this poll? I firmly disagree with many of the numbers. Did you poll ALL people or mostly Democrats?

David Avillo

Time to get Peter Lumaj prepared to run against this dumb... who is destroying our great state.

James Rhodes

This poll is complete BS; Connecticut is not in favor of same sex marriage. I don't know anyone around here who would support that nonsense.


May I offer some input on your gay marriage question order?

The "personal impact" query needs to come before your 2 questions regarding support/opposition. If you ask twice about support/opposition and then ask about personal impact, there is an inherent incentive for the respondent to report that his personal experience is consistent with, and thus supports, his general stance on the issue.

I think the personal impact question is a good one and I am glad to see that you have done it several times now. Generally, PPP gets more people claiming a personal impact one way or the other than did the Des Moines Register in its poll of April 2009 (92% said "no impact"). Please consider ordering the question as per above.


In replying to "jschimdt" post Blumenthal was Attorney General in CT for years and the voters seem to like him. As for Malloy thats what he did as mayor of Stamford for years: raise taxes. I still don't get how he lasted as Mayor of Stamford for that long and even beat an incumbent Republican Mayor in 1995.


Can't wait to send him to the unemployment line.

Too bad CT doesn't have a recall provision in the state's constitution.


A Generic Republican mean one in the level of McMahon?

If she loses in 2012, I would not be surprised if she try to be Governor in 2014.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
