Poll: Gov. Bob McDonnell's Job Approval Rating Slips

Richmond, VA - A newly released poll says Governor McDonnell's job approval rating has slipped to its lowest point in two years.

Researchers at Quinnipiac University surveyed close to 1,300 registered voters and 49 % of them approved McDonnell's job performance. That's down from 53 % in February and March.

McDonnell's approval was the highest in October 2011 at 62 %.

Voters did not appear to be swayed by the Star Scientific case though --12 % of surveyed voters said it was a big deal to them.
