According to the latest Quinnipiac Poll, 46% think Kane should step down.
On the other hand, 32% want the AG to stay. Still nearly a quarter of respondents, 22%, are not sure.
While these numbers are certainly not good for Kane, they are an improvement from August. Back then, Quinnipiac found a 49/27/24 split on this question.
Interestingly Kane’s strongest support comes not from Democrats, who favor her resignation by a 47% to 33% margin, but independents who are almost evenly split 36% to 33% (Republicans unsurprisingly back Kane’s resignation the strongest, 51% to 27%).
There is also no real gender gap on the question. 49% of men think Kane should leave while 32% believe she should stay. Meanwhile, 44% of women want her to step down against 31% who don’t.
Finally, Kane’s approval ratings are awful at just 24%. 52% disapprove of the job she is doing.
This survey was conducted by Quinnipiac University using live interviewers calling land lines and cell phones from September 25th to October 5th. They contacted 1,049 registered voters. The margin of error is +/- 3%.
