Poll: Half of New Yorkers Say Paterson Should Stay

 

In yet another poll, only 35 percent of African Americans approve of the way Governor David Paterson is performing his job, according to Quinnipiac.

Forty percent of African Americans disapprove of Paterson’s handling of his job, according to the poll.

African Americans were among Paterson’s only sources of political strength for awhile, but now that seems to be eroding.

The poll, which did not ask any questions about Andrew Cuomo, did have some good news for Paterson: 50 percent of voters say he should finish out his term, compared to 39 percent who say he should resign.
