A Quinnipiac Poll released today reveals that a large majority of New Yorkers believe that the state government is the worst or among the worst in the nation.
Voters say 77% to 19% that the New York State Senate is dysfunctional.
49% of those polled believe that almost everyone in the State Senate should be thrown out.
Director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, Maruice Carroll explains:
"While voters tend to like their own legislators, almost half of New Yorkers are ready to throw out their own state senator in a general house-cleaning.
"Voters would like to see a Constitutional Convention to straighten out Albany. Memo to Dick Ravitch: They'd like to see it come up with a system to replace a lieutenant governor when that person is promoted to Governor or resigns or otherwise leaves office."
