There’s a new Siena poll out on the election, and the results are fairly predictable. Mitt Romney will trounce everyone else in the primary, and then Obama will trounce him in the general.There was one really interesting nugget. New Yorkers are freakishly optimistic, at least compared to much of the country.

“By a better than two-to-one margin, 64-31 per cent, New Yorkers think America‟s best days are still to come rather than believing that America‟s best days are behind us,” Greenberg said. “While Democrats are most convinced of this, a majority of Republicans and independents agree, as do at least 60 per cent of upstaters and downstaters, men and women, young, middle-aged and older voters, black and white voters, and voters from all income ranges. Although a majority of voters think the country is currently headed in the wrong direction, a much larger majority is optimistic about our nation‟s future.”
