He’s past the 100 day mark, and more than six in ten registered voters in New York State are heaping praise on President Barack Obama.



64% of the state’s electorate views his job performance as either excellent or good while 14% think he is doing a poor job. Little has changed since Marist’s March survey. At that time, President Obama was seen as performing well by 68% of New York voters.
