New Siena Poll Shows Amazon Cancelling Plans for a Queens HQ is Bad for NY

By a 67%-21% margin, New Yorkers say Amazon cancelling its planned second headquarters in Queens was bad for New York.

By as nearly as large a margin, 61%-30%, they support the deal in which Amazon would receive up to $3 billion in state and city incentives and create up to 25,000 jobs if Amazon reconsiders, according to a new Siena College poll of New York State registered voters released Monday.

Meanwhile, an overwhelming 79% of voters say parents should be required to have their children vaccinated before attending school, regardless of the parents’ religious beliefs.

Voters continue to support making the 2% property tax cap permanent, legalizing recreational use of marijuana, and eliminating monetary bail for misdemeanors and non-violent felonies.

They are split on congestion pricing, and by a nearly two-to-one margin, they oppose allowing undocumented immigrants to get a New York driver’s license.
