June 4, 2004 - Kerry Tops Bush By 10 Points In Connecticut, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; Voters Would Accept Massachusetts Gay Marriages
Democratic challenger John Kerry tops President George W. Bush 46 - 36 percent among Connecticut voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Independent candidate Ralph Nader gets 8 percent.

President Bush gets a negative 39 - 55 percent approval rating, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds, his lowest ever in Connecticut.

By a 52 - 42 percent margin, Connecticut voters say going to war in Iraq was the wrong thing to do. Voters say 66 - 29 percent that abuse of prisoners in Iraq is a major issue and unacceptable, not something that routinely happens in war.

Offered several choices, 28 percent of voters say the economy is the most important issue in deciding how they will vote for President, followed by 25 percent who list Iraq, 17 percent who say terrorism and 10 percent who say health care.

Voters give Bush a negative 38 - 56 percent approval for his handling of the economy and a negative 37 - 57 percent score for his handling of Iraq. The President gets a 51 - 43 percent approval for his handling of terrorism.

"President Bush's approval rating has dropped to an all-time low in Connecticut. The President gets low marks for his handling of the economy and the situation in Iraq which has helped Sen. Kerry build a 10-point lead," said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D. Same-Sex Unions

While Connecticut voters support civil unions for same-sex couples 59 - 35 percent, they oppose gay marriage 50 - 45 percent. At the same time, voters oppose 65 - 30 percent amending the U.S. Constitution to ban same-sex marriages.

And if a same-sex couple legally married in Massachusetts moves to Connecticut, that marriage should be recognized as legal, voters say 50 - 45 percent.

"Connecticut is more liberal than the rest of the nation when it comes to civil unions for same-sex couples. While the nation opposes civil unions for same-sex couples, a clear majority of Connecticut voters support them. Voters continue to narrowly oppose gay marriage, but by the same narrow margin, they think gay marriages in neighboring Massachusetts should be accepted here," Dr. Schwartz said. Senate Race

Democratic U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd holds a commanding 65 - 20 percent lead over Republican challenger Jack Orchulli. Sen. Dodd has a 49 - 17 percent favorability rating, with 20 percent mixed and 13 percent who say they haven't heard enough to form an opinion. For Orchulli, 87 percent of Connecticut voters say they haven't heard enough to form an opinion.

While Dodd enjoys a 59 - 22 percent approval, Sen. Joseph Lieberman gets a 63 - 24 percent approval.

"Connecticut voters have welcomed Sen. Lieberman back from the Presidential campaign trail. Lieberman has the highest approval rating of any elected official in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey or Pennsylvania. He always had been popular in Connecticut, and now that he is planning to stay home, he has regained that popularity," Dr. Schwartz said.

From May 26 - June 1, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,350 Connecticut registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percentage points.

The Quinnipiac University Poll conducts public opinion surveys in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and the nation as a public service and for research.
