How Did Paterson Get to 26 Percent Job Approval?


Yesterday we learned that David Paterson’s job-approval rating was at an abysmal 26 percent — that’s the lowest ever for a New York governor since the polling agency, Marist, has been asking voters the question. His numbers weren’t always so bad: For most of last year they were hovering just over 50 percent. We’re almost at the Cuddle Guv’s first anniversary in office. So how did we get here?
