May 17, 2006 - State Government Broken And Only Spitzer Can Fix It, New York Voters Tell Quinnipiac University Poll; Faso Ahead Of Weld Among Republicans
New York State government is broken and needs to be fixed, voters say 72 - 20 percent, and State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer is the only candidate for Governor who can fix it, voters say in a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Asked by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll which candidate can fix New York State government, voters who agree that it is broken say:
  • 54 - 27 percent, including 46 - 39 percent among Republicans, that Spitzer can fix it;
  • 22 - 37 percent, with 41 percent undecided, that Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi can fix it;
  • 13 - 39 percent, with 48 percent undecided, that Republican candidate John Faso can fix it;
  • 13 - 41 percent, with 46 percent undecided, that Republican William Weld can fix it.
Among New York State Democrats, Spitzer leads Suozzi 73 - 13 percent, compared to 69 - 14 percent in a March 29 Quinnipiac University poll. "'Eliot Spitzer is our handy man,' New York State voters say. Even Republicans think he's the guy who can fix our broken government," said Maurice Carroll, Director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

"In this and every other measure, Spitzer dominates the field while Democrat Thomas Suozzi and Republicans John Faso and William Weld are struggling for some name recognition, just a few weeks before the party conventions."

New York State Republican voters back Faso over Weld 30 - 21 percent, with 42 percent undecided.

John Faso has a narrow lead among voters for the Republican nomination for Governor. William Weld has much of the establishment. The cliché is that Republicans pick conservatives. What will party leaders do at the convention?" Carroll said.

But both Spitzer and Suozzi have substantial leads over the likely Republican contenders. Spitzer-Republican matchups show:
  • 66 - 17 percent over William Weld, virtually unchanged from March 29;
  • 67 - 16 percent over John Faso, also unchanged.
Suozzi-Republican matchups show:
  • 46 - 20 percent over William Weld, with 28 percent undecided, unchanged.
  • 46 - 19 percent over John Faso, with 28 percent undecided, unchanged.
Gov. George Pataki gets a negative 33 - 55 percent approval rating, his lowest ever. Republican voters split 45 - 44 percent on Pataki's approval. By a 71 - 19 percent margin, Republican do not want the Republican Party to nominate Pataki to run for President in 2008. Republicans say 49 - 43 percent they do not want Pataki to run for Vice President.

A total of 39 percent of New York State voters are "very satisfied" or "somewhat satisfied" with the way things are going in the state today, with 61 percent who are "somewhat dissatisfied" or "very dissatisfied."

"Who was that guy who vetoed all the budget stuff? New York voters are beginning to dismiss George Pataki, both as Governor and as a presidential candidate. Veep? Maybe," Carroll said.

From May 8 - 14, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,154 New York State registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points. The survey includes 357 Republicans with a margin of error of +/- 5.2 percent, and 499 Democrats with a margin of error of +/- 4.4 percent.
