Poll: Yes to Term Limits in Albany

A new Quinnipiac poll says New Yorkers wants term limits for state lawmakers by a margin of 67 to 27 percent.

The survey didn’t ask people what they thought of their own assembly member or senator, who keep getting re-elected despite the legislature’s low overall approval rating.

But here’s how they responded when asked about Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno.

Silver’s job approval rating: 29 percent approve; 33 percent disapprove.

Bruno’s : 27 percent approve; 36 percent disapprove.

For the sake of an apples-and-oranges comparison, Hillary Clinton’s approval rating is 72-23 and Chuck Schumer’s is 65-25.
