Dayton’s Approval Rating On The Rise

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013 at 8:47 am

A new poll out shows that Gov. Mark Dayton is growing in popularity. The poll, put out by the Star Tribune, shows that more than half of Minnesotans surveyed are happy with Dayton’s performance.

The Start Tribune reports that 57 percent of adults surveyed think Dayton is doing a good job; that’s the highest approval rating since he took office.

The Associated Press notes that the support follows a legislative session in which Dayton signed sweeping changes into law, including a $2 billion dollar tax increase, legalizing same-sex marriage and funding all-day kindergarten across Minnesota.

The phone poll surveyed 800 people June 11-13 and has an error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
