In a recent SIENA poll, New Yorker’s oppose using SUNY dorms to temporarily house migrants by 54-33%. When it came to relocating migrants from New York City to housing in other counties, but paid for by NYC, 46% opposed with 40% approving.
“Voters oppose using SUNY dorms to temporarily house new migrants to New York by a 21-point margin. It’s opposed by more than three-quarters of Republicans and a majority of independents, while Democrats are evenly divided. Pluralities of young and Latino voters support using SUNY dorms to temporarily house migrants, but majorities of older, white and Black voters oppose it,” said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg.
The poll was conducted between the dates of June 20th and 25th among 817 registered voters in New York.
