LOUDONVILLE, NY – Governor Kathy Hochul’s popularity in the Democratic gubernatorial primary continues to grow.

According to a new Siena College Research Institute poll, if the election were today Hochul would lead with 36 percent of the vote over State Attorney General Letitia James with 18 percent, New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams with 10 percent and Representative Tom Suozzi and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio both with six percent. Twenty-four percent of people remain undecided.

Polling data also found that state voters believe creating economic opportunity, fighting crime, and managing the pandemic should be top priorities in 2022.

State voters also support the Build Back Better Act, although half of those polled feel it will increase inflation. They go on to say that will likely have a negative effect on the economy and their personal finances.
