Paterson mired at the bottom
The latest Marist Poll is anything but good news for New York State Gov. David Paterson.
The governor’s approval rating is stuck at about 20 percent. The June survey found the governor at 21 percent. A month earlier he was at 19 percent.
“(H)e is even scraping bottom with his fellow Democrats,” according to Marist Poll. “Just 24 percent of Democrats say he is doing well as governor. Twelve percent of Republicans and 22 percent of non-enrolled voters agree.”
