Poll: Majority Say Governor Dayton is Doing a Good Job

Jim Maurice

ST. PAUL (AP) – A new poll shows the majority of Minnesotans think Gov. Mark Dayton is doing a good job leading the state.

The Star Tribune poll shows 52 percent of respondents approve of Dayton’s leadership. Thirty-one percent disapprove, while 17 percent declined to answer the question or had no opinion.

The poll included 807 adults surveyed by phone across Minnesota Nov. 2-3. It has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

Dayton says he’s encouraged by the support, especially after the state budget impasse, government shutdown and Vikings stadium issue. The DFL governor has ongoing battles with the Republican-led House and Senate.

Minnesotans elected Dayton as governor a year ago with 43 percent of the vote.
