The Latest Polls

Crain’s New York reported on a recent poll today, among the results:

New Yorkers like Steamrolling Spitzer – he has a 74% approval rating. It should be interesting to see whether he can turn this political capital into actual progress in Albany.

New Yorkers did not look favorably on the legislature’s antics regarding the comptroller election – 69% of voters polled sided with Spitzer. I imagine a similar poll of state legislators would reveal that none of them care because they all have safe seats anyway. I think Hevesi's election shows how difficult it is to knock an incumbant out of an office that the average voter doesn't know much about.

Unsurprisingly, if the primaries were held today, Giuliani and Hillary would win their respective primaries in the state.
