N.Y. Poll: Voters Say Paterson Shouldn't Quit

Wednesday, 03 Mar 2010 03:46 PM

A poll shows many New Yorkers don't want Gov. David Paterson to quit and don't want state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to investigate the scandal that could sink him.

The Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday finds that 61 percent of voters don't want Paterson to resign. Cuomo is investigating whether he or staff members tried to persuade a woman to drop a domestic violence complaint against a top aide.

The poll showed even most women don't want Paterson to quit.

Sixty-one percent of voters prefer an investigation by an independent prosecutor rather than Cuomo, a Democrat expected to run for governor. Paterson dropped his campaign for a full term last week under pressure.

Quinnipiac questioned 1,237 registered voters Monday and Tuesday. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
