NY Governor David Paterson’s Job Performance Rating: 19 Positive, 78 Negative

A little while ago, I said that Sen. Chris Dodd was “almost toast” in his bid for reelection in 2010.

One state over, Gov. David Paterson is “toast.”

The latest Siena poll:

Paterson is viewed favorably by 29 percent of voters and unfavorably by 58 percent, down from last month’s 40-47 percent rating. His job performance rating is 19 percent positive, 78 percent negative down from 28-69 percent last month. Only 14 percent of voters are prepared to elect Paterson as Governor in 2010, compared to 67 percent who prefer “someone else.” That’s down from 19-57 percent last month.
