Poll: Most New Yorkers Support Raising Minimum Wage

A majority of New Yorkers support Governor Cuomo's plan for a raise in the minimum wage. In a new Quinnipiac University poll, 80 % of people in the state say they'd like to see an increase in the minimum wage. Along party lines, 95% of Democrats favor a raise, 77% of Independent voters are in support, and 61% of Republicans would like to see wages jump.

Cuomo suggested increasing the state minimum wage from from $7.25 to $8.50 an hour in his State of the State speech earlier this month.

There's more information in the poll, which was released on Wednesday.
