New York: Poll Drills Deeper on Fracking, Finds Same Fractured Views

(The Journal News)

As like the many polls before it, voters remained split on whether New York should allow for the controversial hydraulic fracturing for natural gas, a Siena College poll today found.

Even in the Southern Tier, where most of drilling would take place, residents’ opinions were fractured, the poll found.

Voters statewide were evenly divided – 40 percent on each side – on whether the state Department of Environmental Protection should give regulatory approval for hydrofracking.

In the Southern Tier, the split was similar: 47 percent were supportive; 48 percent were opposed.
