Poll Finds New Yorkers in Favor of Campaign Finance Reform, Public Financing

Looks like New Yorkers really do "give a hoot" about campaign finance reform.

Siena College's Research Institute put out poll numbers today that show a majority of New Yorkers, 53%, "believe that Governor Eliot Spitzer's campaign finance reform legislation would make elections fairer." 51% of New Yorkers support public financing for elections.

The poll also shows that 62% of New Yorkers oppose a legislative pay raise.
