FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Just as President Barack Obama was visiting the state Wednesday, his approval numbers in Connecticut hit their lowest ever, according to a new poll.

Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president?

  • Approve

  • Disapprove


Connecticut voters give Obama a negative 45 percent to 51 percent approval rating, his lowest score ever in the state, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released on Tuesday, March 4.

There is a wide gender gap, with men disapproving 57 percent to 40 percent while women are divided, with 49 percent approving and 47 percent disapproving, the poll said.

Obama's score is very low among Republicans in the state, with the president getting a negative 7 percent to 92 percent from Republicans, the poll said.

He does not fare much better from independent voters, with a negative outcome of 38 percent to 57 percent. 

Democrats give the president a large approval score, however, with the poll showing an 80 percent to 16 percent rating.

Obama gets a lukewarm 49 percent to 43 percent approval from voters ages 18 to 29 and negative grades among older voters, the poll said.

Take part in the Daily Voice poll. That is the exact question asked by the Quinnipiac Poll.

This is all due to the lies and propaganda spread by the right wing wacko media.

The boy king has no clothes.(or brains).Impeach the manchild in chief before he does any more damage!

It's about time the people of CT got smart.

Woodbury,the problem is that they aren't smart.Look at the left-wing clowns we have in Hartford.For the most part,they are a bunch of uninformed dolts.They voted for Obozo twice.Fool me once,shame on you,ect. There are too many takers now,and not enough producers.

Why do you concern yourself about Ct when you live in Port Chester.. Is just to post your spam?

Another proof the guy is a wuss:

Nonsense from a far right wing wacko blog.

The guy is a wuss.

Does Putin or any world leader respect and fear this guy? Take a wild guess.

A link to a site with no credibility.. Right wing wacko blog. Typical

the most interesting part of the article is - again - reading posts from impostor lefties who have stolen others' screen names only to turn around and complain, ironically, about "lies" from the republicans (without any substantiation, of course).

Actually the interesting part is how you post as noreally and then post as BClinton's Johnson and agree with yourself.. Right Robtard????

Its probably better than the rating we can give Himes,Duff,Perone and Morris.
