An overwhelming majority of NYS voters say open primaries will bring needed change to failing political system.
A new poll by John Zogby Strategies shows an overwhelming numbers of New Yorkers are ready to support open primaries, ending a long tradition of “party only” voters in primaries.
The statewide poll was commissioned by the new non-partisan reform organization Unite NY, and was conducted by John Zogby Strategies on September 28.
The poll reveals that only 38% of likely voters in New York feel “very” or “pretty” satisfied with how the political system works. A majority (56%) believe that the system does not work in its current form and needs serious changes.
