Poll: Most NYers Worried about Terror

By Jason Weinstein.
90 percent of New Yorkers are concerned that another terrorist attack will happen in the state in the near future - and 60 percent are very concerned.

This according to a new Siena Research poll. 63 percent of New Yorkers say they have not changed their lifestyle out of fear of a terrorist attack. However 52 percent oppose allowing Syrian refugees to come to the United States at this time.

On a different issue, in the wake of the conviction of former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, nearly two-thirds of New Yorkers say new ethics laws are needed. And two thirds agree that daily fantasy sports games are gambling and illegal in New York.
