Poll: Spitzer Down, Relatively Speaking

After an onslaught of ads attacking his health care spending plan, Eliot Spitzer’s favorability rating has dropped from 74 percent last month to 62 this month, according to a new Siena poll.

Siena pollster Steven Greenberg also had this to say about what might happen to those numbers if the governor’s first budget isn’t delivered on time:

“Voters believe an on-time budget is important but not nearly as important as a good budget,” Greenberg said. “And if the deadline is missed and there’s no budget by the weekend, voters spread the blame widely and don’t single out the Governor or either house of the Legislature.”
