Poll: Most New Yorkers think Spitzer will change Albany


"November 15, 2006, 10:02 AM ESTALBANY, N.Y. -- More than half of New Yorkers believe "everything changes day one" under Governor-elect Eliot Spitzer, a poll released Wednesday shows. The Siena College poll also found most voters _ 52 percent _ believe the state is headed on the right track for the first time in at least two years. On Nov. 3, before election day, only 36 percent of voters thought the state was headed in the right direction. "

"Fifty-four percent of New Yorkers polled, including 44 percent of Republicans, believe in Spitzer's campaign promise to change the way the state affects its residents. Even in New York City, perhaps the most jaded of political regions in the state, 53 percent believe Spitzer will change the state after 12 years of the Republican Pataki administration, according to the Siena College Research Institute. "

"Spitzer's pre-election rock star status did not fade in the days after the election," said Steven Greenberg, spokesman for the poll and a longtime Democratic staffer. "Voters are counting on Spitzer to turn his slogan into a governing principle." "I haven't seen polling like this when Pataki or (Democratic Gov. Mario) Cuomo got it ... I don't recall anything like this," Greenberg said. "

Eliot Spitzer will not let the voters can take that to the bank..........andy
