A new Quinnipiac University Poll shows real estate developer and entrepreneur Donald Trump leads the pack of Republican presidential candidates among Republican voters in Connecticut.

34 percent of registered Republicans in the state say they would vote for Trump if the Republican primary were held today.

Douglas Schwartz, director of the Quinnipiac poll, said this is the largest percentage Trump has gotten in any of Quinnipiac’s state polls.

Two new Quinnipiac University polls show that New York voters trust the teachers’ unions more than Governor Andrew Cuomo to improve education in the state, and two thirds of New York State voters say the Common Core aligned standardized tests are not an accurate way to measure how well students are learning.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday finds Governor Andrew Cuomo's approval rating is at its lowest since taking office in 2010.

Cuomo’s job approval rating stands at 50 percent, down 8 points just from last December, before the legislative session began and the governor began a more public feud with the state’s teachers unions, said Quinnipiac University spokesman Mickey Carroll.

“It’s not very good,” said Carroll. “A governor should do better than 50 percent."
