LOUDONVILLE – Forty-nine percent of Albany area New Yorkers say “On Pause” restrictions should remain in place as they are beyond the middle of May, while 39 percent say it will be safe to gradually end those restrictions and begin opening the economy after May 15.
That was a finding of a Siena College Capital Region COVID-19 Survey released today and sponsored by the Times Union.
LOUDONVILLE – New Yorkers overwhelmingly approve of the job Governor Cuomo is doing to address the coronavirus pandemic, 87-11 percent, according to a Siena Poll of registered voters released this week.
They also give overwhelmingly high marks to their local health department, Dr. Anthony Fauci, their local government leader, and the CDC.
ALBANY – A new poll out Monday shows support for the state’s bail reform plummeting, following weeks of pushback about the new laws from police groups and prosecutors, North County Public Radio is reporting.
The Siena College poll finds that just one third of New Yorkers now think that the January 1 laws that ended most forms of cash bail for non-violent crimes and shortened the time prosecutors have to hand over evidence to defendants is a good idea. When it was first approved last April, 55% of voters like the law.
