There were things in Dayton's past political career that I didn't care for, including the impression that he was a "quitter" during his time in Congress. He was shunned by his own party but overcame the endorsement process to win the last race. While he might have lost against a more moderate republican, he was lucky that his opponent was seen as a worse choice by moderates and independents. I've been pleasantly surprised that his time as Governor has been much better in terms of practicality over idealism. Even as a moderate conservative, I would be one of the 53% that would give him a favorable rating. Apparently Dayton has matured in his political career.
No way, folks, our governor is not doing a good job. He's doing a GREAT job!!! Thank you, Gov. Dayton, for saving this great state from Emmer and his tea party freaks.
I agree about the tea party freaks but Dayton is going to regret pushing that Stadium down our throats.
The rest have to pay taxes.

I'm anti-stadium, but I applaud him for making a tough decision that Pawlenty failed to confront because it was political liability. I may not like the outcome, but at least he had the intestinal fortitude to make a tough decision and advance the narrative....a quality sadly lacking in most politicians these days.
I voted for Dayton, but then he signed the wolf hunt in to law, so I won't be voting for him again. Klobuchar made sure that the wolf lost all federal protection, in the hope that tea party-types would vote for her. They can. I won't.
"Senate Majority Leader Dave Senjem, R-Rochester, and House Speaker Kurt Zellers, R-Maple Grove, said the results do not surprise or worry them.....One startling figure is that the GOP-controlled Legislature only broke even among Republican voters: 31 percent approve, 32 percent disapprove and 37 percent are undecided." Senjem and Zellers do not aspire to greatness. They are satisfied with mediocrity
Don't believe the Star Trib poll. Remember during the last governor's race they had Dayton up over Emmer by over 10% and yet the election was basically a dead heat.
I guess I am one of the 47% who think he is a left wing party hack. Still waiting for him to bring his trust fund back to MN from its tax free zone in South Dakota.
Thank goodness we didn't end up with Emmer, look at what happened in Wisconsin.
