A new Siena College poll finds that a large majority of New Yorkers are worried about crime in the state.
The survey found that 60 percent of New Yorkers believe it’s a “very serious” problem, while an additional 32 percent say it’s a “somewhat serious” issue.
“Crime and cost of living were voters’ top two priorities for Albany back in December heading into this session, and they remain the two issues voters want Hochul and the Legislature to prioritize,” pollster Steven Greenberg said.
The crime issue caused Governor Kathy Hochul’s favorability rating to fall slightly to 46 percent.
