New York voters have nothing good to say about the state's economy

Friday, November 04, 2011 - 10:22 AM

Happy Friday! Here's some uplifting news from the good folks of Marist and NY1/YNN. According to a poll put out yesterday, nearly 80 percent of voters surveyed said they believed the state was (still) suffering from a recession.

The poll also said 86 percent of voters think the state's economy will stay the same (as in, we'll remain in a recession) or will be getting worse (...depression?). And 54 percent believe the worst is yet to come when it comes to the economy. That number was 47 percent when the question was asked of voters back in February 2011, and at 53 percent in May.
