Poll shows Malloy, his budget plan unpopular

A new survey says Gov. Dannel Malloy and his budget proposal are not popular among Connecticut voters.

A new Quinnipiac University Poll released this morning shows 40 percent of registered voters disapprove of how the new Democratic governor is handling his job. Just 35 percent approve with 25 percent undecided.

Meanwhile, 66 percent say Malloy's plan increases taxes too much with only 19 percent thinking the taxes are about right and just 3 percent favoring more tax increases.

Malloy proposed raising taxes on everything from personal income to haircuts to help close a $3.5 billion deficit.
