Today’s Siena poll finds three-fourths of New Yorkers have an unfavorable view of Congress, and by a 74-19 percent margin, think that the country is headed in the wrong direction.

And, much like the national polls have shown, as the most recent round of fighting in Washington was concluding, voters in the Empire State blamed the Republicans in Congress by a two-to-one margin for the mess, and not the Democratic president.

Congress came within one point of tying the Siena College Poll record high unfavorable rating, recorded by former Gov. Eliot Spitzer the week he resigned in the wake of a prostitution scandal, according to Siena pollster Steve Greenberg said.

In July 2012, Congress had a particularly bad, 27-67 percent, unfavorable rating. It’s gone from bad to worse, Greenberg said.

On the Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare) 43 percent of New Yorkers want to see it move forward as is, 32 percent want to put it on hold until necessary changes can be made and 22 percent want to see it repealed.

President Obama is viewed favorably by 55 percent of voters and unfavorably by 42 percent (down slightly from 57-40 last month).

While 30 percent of voters say the president is most responsible for the shutdown, nearly twice that number – 59 percent – hold Congressional Republicans responsible.

Democrats blame the GOP by eight-to-one, while Republicans blame Obama two-to-one and by a 50-37 percent margin, independents put more blame on the Republicans.

“Not surprising results in a state where there are twice as many Democrats as Republicans,” Greenberg said.

“However, other than Republicans and conservatives, a majority of voters from every region and demographic group place greater blame for the shutdown on the Republicans in Congress.”

On New York’s potential hometown 2016 favorite, Hillary Clinton, two-thirds of New Yorkers view her favorably, and 30 percent view her unfavorably.

She is adored by Democrats and liked by independents, although a majority of Republicans view her unfavorably.
