Poll Shows Cuomo's Numbers Drop, But Support For Proposals Is Strong

Poll Shows Cuomo's Numbers Drop, But Support For Proposals Is Strong

Before this decision, NY was one of 13 states that didn't allow early voting and required an excuse in order to qualify for an absentee ballot-like being out of the county during election day. "I think it's great he came up wth some money for early voting".

Cuomo previously had voiced support for early voting, but had suggested municipalities cover the costs. Support also grew for early voting and the state Dream Act.

In contrast, the state chapter of the League of Women Voters said early voting could help improve New York's "abysmal rate of voter turnout", while adding that counties shouldn't bear the cost.

Czarny, who supports early voting, called the amendment "a very significant development". More than 30 states now allow some form of early voting in person.

Early voting is one component of Cuomo's Democracy Agenda, which includes other electoral reforms.

"The good news for Cuomo is that the two Republicans still seeking to run against him are both unknown to more than three-quarters of NY voters", Greenberg continued.

Cuomo says he wanted to name the dog Excelsior after the state motto but was outvoted by his daughters.

Good news for drivers in Hampton Roads, but not so much for those filling up the tank in the rest of the state. State of Tennessee- $2.37, down 3.6 cents per gallon from last week's $2.40.

Steven Greenberg, a Siena College pollster, says there was little change in how voters view the Legislature and Governor Cuomo's policies. In Cayuga County, for example, one polling site would be required.

"The safety and well-being of our children is New York's top priority, and by proposing stricter laws, we will keep our most vulnerable New Yorkers safe", Cuomo said.

Modest fixes are possible this year, but ideas such as replacing the state income tax with a payroll tax need lots of study.

The $14 billion figure is the amount above $10,000 in state and local taxes - which includes property taxes - that New Yorkers will no longer be able to claim starting with their 2018 taxes next year, his office said.

"From the conversations we've had it seems that the businesses who would take advantage of this are fairly narrow in scope", said Zack Hutchins, spokesman for the Business Council of New York State, a leading business advocacy group.

The Siena College poll Monday was a stark change from the Albany-area's college survey in January, which found the Democratic governor's favorability at its highest in almost four years.
