“What explains Malloy’s low approval rating? Only 32 percent approve of his handling of the budget, while 51 percent disapprove,” Quinnipiac University Poll Director Doug Schwartz said in a press release. “Specifically, they think he is raising taxes too much. While voters think he is raising taxes too much on the middle class, they think he could raise taxes on the wealthy more.”

Voters disapproved 51-32 percent of the way Malloy is handling the budget. Sixty-six percent say it increases taxes too much, 39 percent say it cuts spending too little, 48 percent say it increases taxes on the wealthy too little, and 68 percent say it increases taxes on the middle class too much.

Roy Occhiogrosso, senior communications advisor for Malloy, said the poll results are hardly surprising.
