From Quinnipiac University:
New York State voters oppose 80 - 16 percent a pay raise for state legislators. Opposition is over 70 percent among every group and in every part of the state, except voters with household income of more than $250,000, who oppose the pay raise 53 - 45 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. 
Suggesting a pay raise for legislators as part of a deal to increase the minimum wage in New York State is a bad idea, voters say 66 - 28 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN- uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. Again, there is strong opposition from every group and in every region.
