Marist Institute for Public opinion

    

  Just since Election day in November, there has been a spike in President Obama’s approval ratings. From time to time, we extend our panel to have a debrief on big issues.

In our RT Debrief this morning, Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, a research center and home of the Marist Poll, joins us.

Whatever...

Dec 21, 2013

When it comes to phrases that annoy, it looks like it's "whatever" forever.

Pollsters at Marist College in Poughkeepsie N.Y., found that Americans considered "whatever" to be the most annoying word or phrase in conversation for a fifth straight year.

Thirty-eight percent of adults polled said "whatever" was most annoying in conversation, followed by "like" at 22 percent and "you know" at 18 percent. Bringing up the rear were "just sayin,'" and "obviously."

A poll out Monday shows New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is well-positioned to win re-election. State Republicans say it’s too early to assume an easy win for Cuomo for a second term.

The Wall Street Journal/NBC 4 New York/Marist Poll reveals that Governor Cuomo is a strong, early favorite to win re-election as he heads into 2014. 

That’s Dr. Lee Miringoff, director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion in Poughkeepsie.

The poll by NBC New York, the Wall Street Journal and Marist College found 19 percent of New Yorkers felt the gun law didn't go far enough.

Director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion Lee Miringoff says opposition to the law upstate effected the Governors approval numbers.

Overall, 56 percent felt Cuomo was doing a good or excellent job. That's down from 59 percent in October.

Thursday's poll questioned 814 adults Feb. 26 to Feb. 28, shortly after the new gun law was enacted. It has a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.
