Polls Finds High Expectations for Eliot Spitzer

By Mark Scott

Buffalo, NY – Most of New York voters surveyed in a new poll by Siena College believe that things will change in state government once Democrat Eliot Spitzer takes office as governor. The poll found that 52 percent of voters believe New York state is headed on the right track.

The poll by the Siena Research Institute was conducted in the days following Eliot Spitzer's landslide victory over Republican John Faso. The poll finds that 54 percent of respondents believe Spitzer when he says "everything changes day one."

Siena spokesman Steven Greenberg joined WBFO's Mark Scott on the phone from his Albany office Wednesday to talk more about the high expectations surrounding the incoming Spitzer administration.
