HARTFORD - While Gov. Dannell Malloy tries to win legislative support for the budget, a new poll out today says he has a long way to go to gain the support of Connecticut residents.

A survey by the media and technology company Morning Consult found 64 percent of state residents disapprove of the way the governor is doing his job.

Morning Consult says Malloy's approval rating of 29 percent makes him the second least-favorite governor in the country, ahead of only Sam Brownback in Kansas.
