Most Find Weiner and Spitzer Embarrassing

A new Siena poll finds that although 16% of New Yorkers think the national attention from the Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer candidacies is not a big deal, 8% find it entertaining and 68% think it's embarrassing.

Said pollster Steven Greenberg: "Spitzer is not viewed as unfavorably as he was right after he resigned as Governor, however, he's still viewed unfavorably by 59% of voters -- including a majority of Democrats and New York City voters. While Spitzer's unfavorable rating is down from the 79% who viewed him unfavorably in the aftermath of his resignation, Weiner has set a new all-time Siena College Poll record with 80% of voters viewing him unfavorably - including three-quarters of Democrats and New York City voters - compared to only 11% who have a favorable view of America's most infamous tweeter."
