Siena Poll: Voters Want To See End to Government Corruption
10/21/2013 (Updated 9:54:56 PM)An overwhelming majority of New Yorkers believe that corruption in state government is a serious problem, and want to see efforts to root out that corruption continue.
This is according to a new Siena Poll. 82 percent of New Yorkers believe there is corruption in the legislature, and 77 percent believe it exists in the rest of state government. As a result, 72 percent of New Yorkers want to see the Moreland Commission, established by the governor to investigate corruption in Albany, to continue it's work.
Other findings from the survey say 49 percent of New Yorkers support non-Indian, Las Vegas-style casinos in New York, but that number jumps to 56 percent when read the wording that will appear on the ballot.
