Poll: 57% of New Yorkers say life here is getting worse
A new poll is out on top issues for New Yorkers.
The Siena College Research Institute Poll finds the cost of living in New York is the biggest issue.
The poll found 57% said the quality of life in the state is getting worse. However, 14% said it’s getting better, and 27% said it’s about the same.
Crime, the recent influx of migrants and the availability of affordable housing are the next three most important issues.
The poll also asked several questions about the upcoming 2024 election – including if New Yorkers think President Biden and former President Trump are fit to serve another four-year term.
