This poll queried respondents from the state of New York on a range of political and social issues, with a focus on Governor George Pataki. Respondents were asked to give their general opinions of Pataki as well as Sheldon Silver, Al D'Amato, Daniel Moynihan, and Rudolph Giuliani and to comment on taxes, welfare, funding and tuition for the State Universities of New York (SUNYs), public schools, public parks, and garbage pickup. Background information on respondents includes voter registration status, political party, political orientation, education, age, sex, race, and family income.
