New Yorkers struggling to make ends meet during the recession are clamoring for change in how lawmakers in the state capital conduct business, according to a survey released yesterday.

 

Seventy-five percent of voters in the latest Marist poll said the state needs a new road map, as it is moving in the wrong direction.

 

The poll comes as lawmakers haggle over ways to eliminate a $3.2 billion deficit that could create a severe cash crunch.

 

“Albany is not a good place for politicians right now,” said Lee Miringoff, director of The Marist College Poll. “Voters are dissatisfied with how things are being run and want change.”
