How are these numbers acquired and where do they come from? Even the sheeple
don't think he is doing a good job. A state that raises and educates its
children to good little sheep and obey the herder are vastly misinformed and
under the control of lies and deceit. Huntsman is not a leader, he is a puppet
to business and outside influence of money. Money is his god and he is getting
plenty of it. He is a traitor to america and the ideals of our constitution and
its laws. A man that openly and publicly gives aid and support to illegal
foreign nationals. And he even imports his own illegals to educate illegals
illegally in our schools and take jobs away from american citizens in order to
aid and abet his illegal family of mexican supporters. He ignores the voice of
americans calling us racist and discriminators becasue he refuses to abide by
the laws of our constitution, state and federal. Before he can claim to have the
support of citizens, he must prove he supports our nations laws and not the
greed of his business partners.
If you subtract all the Republican legislators who don't like Huntsman, his
rating is probably 95%.
I guess am feeling alone. I struggle with our gov. As I look at the budget
short fall we are now facing, I look back at the massive spending increases that
have taken place since he has been in office. You can't keep spending at those
levels and not end up in trouble.
Well, that's a relief. I also approve of the dynamic leadership of the guv.But to read the comments on the posts here on the DMN, you would think
his approval to be much, much lower. I guess this tells us something about the
typical person who posts comments here . . .
No one asked me. He looks good but what has he really done? You won't get a
yes vote here.
While there are some things I don't agree with I know I couldn't do a better
job. Good for him for loosening the liquor laws. Let the people choose. The only
thing i'm weary of this session is that while I'm a HUGE supporter of equal
rights in regards to jobs, rent, treatment etc. I believe adoption rights for
homosexuals are going to be hidden in the bills being passed this session. I
hope congress is alert for this. They didn't give up their right to be treated
as humans and all laws tp protect that should be in place but in the choice to
live a homosexual lifestyle the choice to not have children has already been
Excuse me! ..."The new survey conducted by Dan Jones & Associates finds that 64
percent of Utahns approve of the job the state's 104 part-time lawmakers are
doing. There must be some error. How can a bunch of self serving
maniacs manage to garner a 64% rating? I suspect that Dan Jones only polled the
members of the Senate and House.
Governor Huntsman is doing an excellent job. I wouldn't have any trouble voting
for him against a less qualified demo. I saw him give a little speech for the
opening of the Sundance Film Festival and I was proud that we have such an
impressive person as our leader. It was probably a shock to some of the
liberal, eastern, movie crowd, to see that Utah has such a "with it" gov.
Those 90% who approve of the Guv probably haven't done their 2008 State Tax work
yet. Perhaps the poll should be taken after they've all tried to figure out the
logic that increased their taxes this year.
who flies under the radar can get a good rating,let him stand up for something
and then let's see how good he is. On a side note: the salaries of his executive
staff are WAY above what former governors paid their staff...where's all that
money coming from in these difficult economic times? Do your homework on the
issues and you'll see he's NOT as great as the people who take part in the polls
say he is, he's someone's pawn says and does what he's told to do and say.
Re: Who says this?You are spewing out accusations about immigration
that I don't think you're prepared to back up? I'd love to hear your
explanation. Importing illegals to illegally educate other illegals?
What a mouthful - please justify those comments.
Was the poll taken on BYU campus? I think Huntsman is doing an average job and
would say I most likely approve but I don't think 90% of Utahns think this way.
Oh well, I think it will go down quite a bit once the budget cuts happen. I
still can't believe Utah is cutting education. We have the poorest funded
schools and we are going to wrong way. How can we improve education if we can't
keep teachers in Utah. The best teachers go out of state. Anyways, Make us
proud Huntsman, Save our budget then maybe you could get a 90%.
I bet 90% don't believe his stance on global warming and his partnership with
the governor of California Most people couldn't tell you one thing
Governor Huntsman has done since he has been in office. One thing
that frustrates me is I can no longer do business with the state on Friday's
now. And we just heard that this move has not saved the state any money at all.
This Governor has been a disaster.He wants liquor by the drink? A
disaster.Supported an unfit candidate for state treasurer.Stole from Salt Lake County to fund his wife's friend's stadium.Stole zoning rights from communities in Salt Lake county.Thought
public school superindands should run the state's higher educationSupported school vouchers and cost the state millions in fighting for it.Held a special session of th legislature and bowed to Washington's
demands that we re-district PRIOR to consideration for a 4th house seat. Wasting
over $10,000 for nothing.Said the solution to high gas prices was to
go out and check all the pumps at gas stations to see if they were accurate.
Said we must inspect all bridges even though only one bridge in Utah was of the
design that failed in Minnesota. No mind the state already has a regular bridge
inspection program. Wasteful and dumb!Is not a conservative
Republican, but something much closer to a moderate democrat. That's why he
could not support Mitt Romney. In the end the Democrats put up an old dumb guy
that gets around on a trycycle as his opponent! What they were really saying is
"Huntsman is the best democratic governor the state has had in 50 years. We love
him. He is one of us!Asked Utahns to disobey state law and ban
fireworks state wide (2007), rather than working to change the state's fireworks
law that says "No government may restrict fireworks beyond what is provided by
Another invalid survey by Dan Jones, what else is new? Last week he claimed that
Utahns wanted their taxes raised.You don't have to be living in
Tahiti, to know there is absolutely NO VALIDITY to inflated numbers like that,
even if you do like the Guv.Notice how these news reports never tell
us how the questions were worded. Maybe they asked respondents if they'd rather
have him or a deceased guv. and based on the responses, they deduced that 90%
MUST LIKE him!
This rich kid couldn't carry Brack Lee's lunch .
I'm in no way impressed by this man. Very immature.
good job of propoganda, how many folks were asked to participate in the polls
and how many were rejected to suit the number claims. Give us a break - Utahns
are not that stupid or are they?
I read a story last week about a survey by Dan Jones and Associates where they
interviewed 400 people and were representing it as the entire state's opinion.
I'm not feeling very confident with these findings.
I don't see 90 people on here. something fishy going on.
"living in Sandy" you are a troll hiding behind anonymity to slander a good
man.Obviously the election results show that the vast majority of
Utahns disagree with you.
Huntsman's problem is that he worships money and respects god!
The time period of these posts looks very confusing. Where are all the posters
in between if there is 90% approval? KSL said 90% favor Gov- Huntsman from
DESERET NEWS? I'm not reading this in the posts here or anywhere else on the
Oh, governor Huntsman is such a wonderful man.
Great job Mr. Huntsman. Integrity and ethics win out in the end regardless of
party or position. Congrats.
I hear you. My husband and I are paying about $700.00 more in state taxes and
we didn't make that much more this year. I would love an explanation on how
this tax system is better for the majority, as it was touted to be.
Huntsman is a very good man and is doing a fine job. Everyone who doesn't like
him, you try taking his place. You try having to cope with all the stress and
trying to please everyone. Listen to all the negative things you are saying
about him. Imagine if someone was saying that about you! Get a grip, things are
the way they are and we need to learn to cope with them. He is doing his best,
and if you think that you can do better, why don't you all run for governor and
see how hard it is. I am not saying I know how hard, but it sure can't be easy.
And it doesn't help if people from your own state are always ragging on you.
Yeah folks, lay off the Governor. He never did a darn thing to hurt any of you.
Only positive comments allowed.
I hope he is not the future of the Republican party. I am happy to be a part of
the 10% who dissaprove!
If I was living in Utah, I would be among the 10%.
