The President’s approval rating in New York State has ticked upward since last November, but is still upside down. According to this Wall Street Journal/NBC 4 NY/Marist Poll, President Obama has improved his standing among African Americans and New York City voters. Reflecting national trends, voters in New York are not overly enthusiastic about the 2014 elections. Even in blue state New York, Republicans show greater enthusiasm than either Democrats or independents. New Yorkers rate each of their two U.S. Senators, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, more positively than negatively.
“Even in New York, the president struggles to convince a majority of voters that he is doing a good job,” says Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion.
