The Siena poll out today reports that the public's perception of David Paterson hasn't gotten any worse -- but it's not really any better, either.
Seventy-one percent of people polled said they still preferred "someone else" as governor in 2010. And people say they still prefer Eliot Spitzer to Paterson (21/11).
In hypothetical 2010 matchups, people say they prefer Andrew Cuomo to David Paterson 70-19 -- and Cuomo over Rudy Giuliani 53-41
A few more tidbits -- about same-sex marriage, Kirsten Gillibrand and tax caps -- after the jump.
The exact same split reported in this month's Q poll on same-sex marriage shows up in this latest Siena poll, too. Respondents were split 46-46 on whether the state Senate should pass a bill allowing same-sex marriage. That's down from 53-39 in favor back in April.
"DON'T KNOW/NO OPINION" is still the leading position for people's opinion about KG. But she polls ahead of potential 2010 Republican challenger Peter King 48-26. But in a hypothetical matchup with George Pataki, she ties 43-43.
Strong support for a cap on property tax increases, 72-20. The "circuit breaker" option polls at 65-26 in favor. But people say that -- if given the choice of just one -- they'd rather have the circuit breaker 47-45.
