Senator Hillary Clinton's unfavorable rating has climbed by a third, among New York voters, since her November reelection:
While the Democrat's favorable rating among New York voters remained at a robust 56 percent in the latest poll from Siena College's Research Institute, her unfavorable rating was at 40 percent, the highest in the last two years of Siena's polling and up from 33 percent in a January poll conducted just a few days after her presidential campaign announcement.
The Siena poll of New York Democrats found Clinton leading other Democratic contenders:
Clinton 44 percent
Obama 13 percent
Gore 11 percent
Edwards 8 percent
Do you think New Yorkers are unhappy that Senator Clinton is running for president or that she hasn't yet found a way to convince the anything-but-victory Democrats that she regrets supporting the liberation of Iraq?
The poll was conducted February 15-19 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent.
