HARTFORD — With the state’s economy struggling and jobs still hard to find, voters have become increasingly dissatisfied with Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s job performance, a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows.
The governor’s overall disapproval rating is now 47 percent, up from 39 percent in mid-March, according to the poll. Voters are split on Malloy’s prospects for re-election, with 44 percent saying he deserves to be re-elected and 46 percent saying he does not.
