    While Dan Malloy's approvals might be improving that can be attributed to his response to the Newtown shootings.  By the time the election rolls around, I expect him to be in a much different place.  Malloy's close victory was due in large part to an aggressive get out the vote drive funded by the state's labor unions.  A tax increase that hit not just rich folks but also lower and middle income people combined with a concession package for state employees has left a bitter taste in people's mouths when it comes to Dan Malloy.

      CT has a strong Democratic lean, so I think Malloy starts at Lean D, all things being equal.

        Connecticut leans D, but it does have a habit of electing Republican governors.  Dan Malloy was the first elected Democratic governor in a generation.

        Conn. also has a history of electing maverick type Gov's and Republicans.

        Think John Rowland.

        Think Lowell Weicker (that's what Conn. really needs right now).

        There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
