LOUDONVILLE - A new survey finds corruption is a problem in New York State, but voters don't blame Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The latest Siena Research Institute poll was released Monday morning.

89 percent say corruption in the state legislature is a serious problem.

41 percent call it a very serious problem.

A majority of those polled think the governor is trying hard to clean up state government, but there is nothing he can do to prevent crooked politicians.

27 percent think Cuomo deserves much of the blame for corruption.
