Poll: Paterson at a New Low

ALBANY—Only 40 percent of voters approve of the job David Paterson is doing, a new poll released today finds, and it shows a remarkable slide downward over a chaotic two-month period in which Paterson’s administration has come to be viewed as rudderless.
A Siena Poll of 622 voters found that, in addition to the low approval, Paterson is viewed unfavorably by 47 percent of voters surveyed. This is the lowest poll rating since he became governor just under a year ago.
“David Paterson has reached a low water mark with voters since becoming Governor,” said Steven Greenberg, the Siena Poll spokesman.
