Steve has been following the New York political and government scene for three decades. He brings extensive experience in government and campaigns, and for the last seven years has been a pollster with the Siena College Research Institute, which has conducted far more surveys of politics, government and issues in New York than any other public pollster. While New York has been a consistently ‘blue’ state in presidential elections for the last two decades, there are a variety of hotly contested races in 2012 for Congress and the State Legislature. Steve provides analysis on the New York political scene, including Andrew Cuomo’s first two years as Governor, and the upcoming November elections.
