Poll: Cuomo's agenda is almost entirely popular

Tuesday, January 18, 2011 - 09:52 AM


The only major proposal Andrew Cuomo is pushing that is not supported by a majority of New Yorkers is his call to let a tax on the rich expire. According to a Siena poll released today, 2/3 of voters want to continue tax increases on those making more than $200,000 annually.

Interestingly, only 42 percent of voters think the upcoming state budget will not include some form of tax increase.

Among Cuomo's most popular initiatives is his call for more transparency in the legislature. 84 percent say they support lawmakers having to disclose all their outside sources of income.
