Published on

Results from the latest Quinnipiac University Poll, conducted every month or two in New York State. These are the results from questions Quinnipiac asks NY state residents on the issue of whether or not they support hydraulic fracturing and shale drilling. The latest results show NYers continue to be divided pretty evenly. However, the trends show support is going up for drilling, especially in Upstate where drilling would actually happen.
