The latest poll by Siena College showed that most New Yorkers back the newly passed new gun and abortion laws.
Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said 67% of Republicans and 73% of gun owners (about one-fifth of all voters) think the law will be good.
With regards to the abortion laws, 63 percent said a law enhancing legal protections for those seeking or performing abortions in New York would be good for the state.
The same poll also showed that almost two-thirds of voters, about 60%, also want to see the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that led to federally-protected the right to seek an abortion.
Meanwhile, most people in the Empire State, 92%, say crime is a serious problem and are concerned about becoming a victim.
The survey also showed that 65 percent said crime in their community is a serious concern, and six in ten respondents are fearful that they could become a victim.
“Crime continues to be an overriding issue for New Yorkers,” Greenberg said.
“At least 90% of voters from every party, region, and race say crime is a serious problem in the state, with at least 57% saying it’s a very serious problem, including 79% of Black voters who say it’s a very serious problem,” Greenberg added.
