A majority of New Yorkers say the state isn’t safer under Governor Kathy Hochul.
A new Siena College poll shows 90 percent of those view crime as a serious issue for New York. That includes 59 percent who say it’s a “very serious” problem.
“Voters can’t say it clearly enough. They’ve said crime is a serious problem for a year; they see it as a serious problem now; they don’t think Hochul has made progress on making communities safer; and, they want their elected officials to address it as a top priority in 2023,” pollster Steven Greenberg said.
Hochul’s favorability rating stands at 45 percent, while her approval is at 49 percent. Both are lower since the last poll in October.
