POLL: New Yorkers Disgusted With “Worst in the Nation” Lawmakers

New Yorkers have become so disgusted with their “worst in the nation” state Legislature they’re willing to dump their local lawmakers to fix it, according to a new poll out this morning.

The Quinnipiac University survey found 58 percent of the state’s registered voters rank the 212-member Legislature as “the worst” or “among the worst” in the United States, up from 42 percent in January.

The dismal 16-point upswing follows a disastrous legislative session, in which lawmakers raised state taxes by more than $8 billion, rejected most of Gov. Paterson’s reform proposals and wasted five weeks on an internal power struggle in the Senate.

The poll shows nearly half of voters – 49 percent to 40 percent – believe their local senator deserves to be thrown out of office as punishment for the coup. Another 50 percent said the 31-day Senate stalemate left them “embarrassed to be a New Yorker.”
