Siena Poll: Everything Sucks
Siena says Governor Paterson got "a little credit" from his firm but ineffective stands in the crisis -- that is, his unfavorable rating dropped a point, to 56 percent, and voters would prefer someone else run the state by a mere 69 points. Cuomo's still their choice, but his favorables have dropped eight points in a month -- perhaps fallout from his hassling of fake internet critics.
A record high 64 percent think New York is headed in the wrong direction. That number is up for the U.S., too, but only to 41 percent, with the late Bush era 69 percent still holding fast to the #1 slot. See, it's not all gloom and doom.
