I like it. Pawlenty has always had my approval.

Mine too. The people who recently used the bridge collapse against him for political purposes look like A$$es in my opinion.

Pawlenty has our approval also-he showed leadership thru the bridge collapse, during his last campaign he showed that he's a gentleman-no dirty tricks. That was refreshing.

Great point. Agree or disagree with his policies, he tells you where he stands and the rationale behind it. What you see in the campaign is exactly what you get in the job. in select cases, he will change his course based on new information. That is a sign of a good leader.

That's good right? The higher the job approval rating means he's actually bridging the gap between the DFL and repos.

I can't believe the people posting in this room? Must have mutliple aliases with all the the "me-too-isms."

Pawlenty is like the admiral in the Pirates of Penzanze. He sticks close to his desk and doesn't do anything.

So if not spending money for programs that needed $, then he's your hero. BTW, the bridge collapsed for LACK OF PROPER FUNDING AND POOR INSPECTION. Who's responsible for that? Answer--Governor Pawlenty.

I'd call him "Pawlenty of Nothing." {as in Plenty of Nothing}

Let's see... 5 positives vs. 1 negative. Yep -- that is about the ratio of support from typical Minnesotans as well. Go Tim!

Don't get too cocky, he did only receive 47% of last year's gubernatorial election, which would represent a far greater measure of approval than a poll taken immediately after a traumatic local event, the aftermath of which made most Minnesota politicians look pretty good. (Even Coleman looks good now.) I would be absolutely shocked if his numbers didn't go right back down as soon as the next legislative session begins. Such is the current state of politics.
