The Siena poll out today has some interesting -- if not necessarily surprising -- results.
People are still down on David Paterson (though marginally less so) -- but they've also turned against pretty much everyone else in state government (with one exception).
The Siena poll reports that the latest survey returned record-high unfavorable ratings for:
- The New York Senate
- The New Assembly
- Malcolm Smith
- Dean Skelos
- Sheldon Silver
- Tom Golisano
And, as you would probably expect, respondents say we're headed in the wrong direction. A record-high 63 percent of people said the state was going the wrong way (and a record-low 24 percent said it was going the right way).
The one exception to all this: Andrew Cuomo. He scored his highest-ever approval rating (71 percent) this time around. The current AG leads Rudy Giuliani 49-40 in a hypothetical gubernatorial matchup.
And about same-sex marriage...
Support for passage of a same-sex marriage bill hit 50 percent again.
