Poll: 76 Percent of New Yorkers Disapprove of Legislature They Continue to Reelect Year After Year


Here are some results of a Quinnipiac poll out yesterday:

New York State government is dysfunctional, 83 percent of voters say, the highest number ever measured in the state, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. A total of 80 percent of New York State voters are "somewhat dissatisfied" or "very dissatisfied" with the way things are going in the state, also the highest dissatisfaction ever in New York ... New York State voters disapprove 76 - 16 percent of the way the State Legislature is doing its job, the highest disapproval ever recorded for this group. To clean house in Albany, all New York State senators, even their own local senator, should be voted out of office this November, voters say 51 - 36 percent. Voters say 50 - 34 percent that State Assembly members, even their own representative, should go, too.

So, basically, if New York State were a car company, it would be out of business by now. But just you watch: This fall, most of these clowns will be back — particularly the ones who hold all the power. Can someone come bail us out?
