Other politicians fare poorly too


Gov. David Paterson isn’t the only one faring poorly in recent polls.
Today,  Marist Poll released a survey showing 69 percent of registered voters in New York State said they did not want disgraced former Gov. Eliot Spitzer to run for statewide office next year.  Included are 62 percent of Democrats, Spitzer’s own party, 77 percent of Republicans, and 72 percent of independents.


“Controversy-ridden former New York State Governor Eliot Spitzer has refuted rumors that he is looking to seek political office again,” according to the Marist Poll web site. “And, perhaps, that’s a good thing.”
Nor is the distain limited to the executive branch. Seventy percent of the state’s registered voters are still angry about the Senate, according to what they told the Marist Poll. The number is unchanged from when Marist last asked the question in June.
The breakdown was 72 percent of Democrats, 71 percent of Republicans, and 67 percent of independent voters.
