Governor Lincoln Chafee is shrugging off his lower approval ratings.
A survey by the Taubman Center at Brown University shows 25 percent of Rhode Islanders approve of the way Chafee is governing. That’s down from 28 percent in October.

Chafee says he isn’t worried. "I just do my job and that’s what I’ve done in my whole career  as a councilman, as a mayor, as a senator, in private practice. I’ve won elections. I’ve lost elections but all I care about is doing my job."
 
Chafee faces re-election in November, 2014.
