Sample and Methodology detail

New York State voters support 62 - 29 percent offering tax breaks to encourage corporations and businesses to locate in the state, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today. Support is strong among every listed party, gender, education, age, racial and regional group.

Voters say 64 - 28 percent that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other leaders should try to convince Amazon to revive its plans to build a headquarters in Long Island City, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. Again, all listed groups support this by wide margins. Voters say 59 - 32 percent that the jobs Amazon promised were worth the $3 billion in tax breaks and other benefits offered by the city and state.

New York State voters are divided on whether to allow people charged with a crime, but with no history of violence, to be released without bail pending trial as 45 percent support the no- bail option, with 42 percent opposed. Support for releasing non-violent suspects under 21 years old without bail is 50 - 38 percent.

Among men 47 percent support releasing all non-violent suspects without bail, as 40 percent are opposed. Women are divided as 43 percent support the no-bail idea, with 44 percent opposed. Democrats back the measure 57 - 30 percent. Republicans are opposed 68 - 23 percent and independent voters are divided as 42 percent support the no-bail idea, with 43 percent opposed. White voters are divided with 42 percent in support and 45 percent opposed. Non-white voters back the idea 51 - 37 percent.

"New York State voters to Amazon: 'Can you deliver a second chance?' In hindsight, New Yorkers think those hotly debated incentives offered to Amazon were worth it in the end. Almost two-thirds of New Yorkers want elected officials to try and woo Amazon to reconsider its decision not to build a campus in New York," said Mary Snow, polling analyst for the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"As the clock ticks toward the April 1 deadline for the state budget, two key measures pushed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo have mixed results. New Yorkers are divided on eliminating cash bail and on the congestion pricing plan to raise revenue for the region's mass transit system," Snow added.

New York State voters remain divided on the issue of congestion pricing in Manhattan as 46 percent support it, with 44 percent opposed. New York City voters back the measure 54 - 43 percent, while suburban voters are opposed 52 - 39 percent. Upstate voters are divided with 42 percent supporting congestion pricing and 41 percent opposed.

New York State voters approve 50 - 41 percent of the job Gov. Andrew Cuomo is doing, the first time his approval rating has hit 50 percent since a 54 - 39 percent rating May 2, 2018. Approval ratings for other New York State leaders are:
  • 54 - 36 percent for U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer;
  • 46 - 30 percent for U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand;
  • 15 - 15 percent, with 71 percent undecided, for State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie;
  • 22 - 16 percent, with 62 percent undecided, for State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins.
Living in New York

New York State voters say 61 - 35 percent they feel like they can afford to live in the state. By region, 67 percent of upstate voters, 55 percent of New York City voters and 63 percent of suburban voters feel they can afford to live here.

Voters say 35 - 59 percent they "will be forced to move in the next five years for better economic opportunity."

Voters support 65 - 32 percent "allowing adults in New York State to legally possess small amounts of marijuana for personal use." This 2-1 support is consistent with Quinnipiac University New York State polls for the last year.

Voters support 59 - 38 percent the sale of legal marijuana in their community.

From March 13 - 18, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,216 New York State voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3.8 percentage points, including the design effect.

32. As you may know, Amazon would have received roughly 3 billion dollars in tax breaks and other benefits from the state and the city as part of its deal to locate one of its new headquarters in Long Island City. Amazon said it would have created 25,000 new jobs. Which comes closer to your point of view: the tax incentives and benefits were worth the jobs Amazon said it would bring to New York City, or the jobs Amazon said it would bring to New York City are not worth giving Amazon those tax incentives and benefits?
