35% of New York State registered voters currently say DiNapoli is doing either an excellent or good job in office.  In Marist’s June survey, the comptroller received similar marks with 32% approving of his performance.

DiNapoli needs to do more to sway those who are unfamiliar with him.  26% of voters say they do not know how to rate him.  Earlier this summer, that proportion was 28%.
