Patch's Poll: Would You Have a Beer with Gov. Malloy?

The latest Quinnipiac poll shows Connecticut residents like the governor as a person, but aren't so crazy about the job he's doing. Take our poll and add your thoughts in the comments.

A Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday shows that while more folks in Connecticut like Gov. Dannel Malloy as a person, fewer like the job he is doing as the state's chief executive.

Forty-seven percent of registered voters questioned said they like the governor as a person, while 17 percent don't.

"The same poll showed 44 percent of registered voters disapprove of the job that he's doing, while 37 percent approve. In March, Quinnipiac found 45 percent disapproved of the job Malloy was doing, compared to 44 percent who approved," the Associated Press reported.

Roy Occhiogrosso, senior advisor to the Governor, released the following statement regarding today's Quinnipiac University poll.

"We have tried to be consistent in not saying much about polls because ... what's there to say?  Polls come and go, numbers go up and down.  The governor always does what he thinks is best for the state and the right thing to do."

He is doing a fine job. Remind me of the last time a Governor of our state had so many town hall meetings with the constituents when it wasn't a month from elections??? Anyone?

I'll have a beer with him to celebrate when he's out of office finally.

Last night was the send off ceremony for our troops leaving for Afghanistan next week.. My nephew Ryan was among them. He asked our Governor Malloy if he could have a pic taken with him... To which our governor stated he was too busy and walked away without even a handshake or words of thanks for supporting our country.... Such great support Governor Malloy showed a soldier leaving his loved ones while the "busy" governor stays in the U.S. in his cozy office and able to be with his family. Really... Couldn't spare that extra second??? Thanks for showing your support to our soldiers! But Senator Lieberman had no problem with having his picture taken with this same soldier. THANK YOU SENATOR LIEBERMAN for taking the time to show respect. As for Malloy How dare you disrespect a soldier who is putting his life on the line for you and your family.
