Different Direction, Good; Stop and Frisk and Overturning Term Limits, Bad, Voters Say in Exit Poll
An Edison Research exit poll conducted tonight is saying that 3/4 of New Yorkers want to move in a different direction from the Bloomberg years, even though 51 percent think he did a good job. The pollsters also found that 58 percent thought the stop and frisk campaign was excessive, and 66 percent thought term limits were a bad idea.
The poll found that 70 percent of voters held a positive impression of Bill de Blasio, while 60 percent felt the same way about Bill Thompson. Christine Quinn fared less well. Anthony Weiner had the least favorable impression, the poll found.
