RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Less than three months into office, Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe's approval rating is at 44 percent, though a new poll shows 57 percent of Virginia voters say they are optimistic about the new governor's term.
A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows that 27 percent of voters want McAuliffe and the General Assembly's top priority for 2014 to be improving the state's economy and job market. Only 9 percent said the top priority should be health care, and just 4 percent said it should be Medicaid.
McAuliffe and the GOP-controlled House of Delegates are at loggerheads over whether to enact a large-scale expansion of the state's Medicaid program. The standoff could lead to a state government shutdown.
