Abstract: This special topic poll surveyed people in New York State to solicit public opinion on a range of political personalities and social issues. Opinions were sought on New York politicians Mario Cuomo, George Pataki, Daniel Moynihan, and Bernadette Castro. Respondents were asked how they would vote in the upcoming gubernatorial, senate, comptroller, and attorney general races. They were also asked to identify major problems that faced New York State and whether those problems would get better or worse if Mario Cuomo or George Pataki were elected governor. Opinions on Bill Clinton, the death penalty, homosexuality, and abortion were also elicited. Background information includes voter registration status, household composition, vote choice in the 1992 presidential election, political party, political orientation, education, age, sex, race, religious preference, and family income.
