Siena College Poll
Some residents and business owners who have been fed up with the encampment at Zuccotti Park say they’re glad the city evicted Occupy Wall Street protesters and cleaned up the park early Tuesday morning.
A poll said the New York Legislature’s top priority heading into the final weeks of the 2011 session should be passing a property tax cap. The Siena College poll said the next priorities should be an ethics reform law followed by extending rent control laws in New York City.
The poll questioned more than 400 voters in each district. The margin of error was between 4.8 points and 4.9 points, plus or minus. Democrats have a 32-30 majority.
A majority of New Yorkers remain opposed to a mosque proposed as part of a planned Islamic cultural center near ground zero, and the issue will be a factor for many voters this fall.
