Marist poll, part deux: Most think NY economy is stagnant


A majority of New York voters think the state’s economy is “staying about the same,” according to a new poll from Marist College.

The telephone survey found 53 percent of registerred voters think the state’s economy has been stagnant, while 18 percent think it’s getting better and 29 percent think it’s getting worse. It’s a bit of a shift from April 2012, when 27 percent said the economy is improving and 23 percent said the opposite.

“The sluggish economy continues to impact New Yorkers,” Marist pollster Lee Miringoff said in a statement. “In fact, the proportion of voters who think the economy is getting better and not worse has flipped since last spring.”

Here’s the breakdown:

According to Marist, 61 percent said they believe New York is in a recession, while 35 percent said no. The poll also touched on gas prices and family finances; you can see the full thing below. Part one of the poll came out Thursday, and looked at Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s approval rating.
