Name recognition is not a strong suit of New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli. Although 31% of voters in New York State think the comptroller is doing either an excellent or good job in office, 27% are either unsure how to rate DiNapoli or have never heard of him. A plurality — 36% — reports DiNapoli is doing a fair job in office, and 6% say he is performing poorly.
Mr. DiNapoli has continuously had a difficult time making inroads with the New York State electorate. In The Marist Poll’s November survey, DiNapoli received almost identical marks.
