ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A majority of New York voters in a recent survey say they don’t think the state’s current elected officials are capable of ending political corruption and should all be voted out of office.

The Quinnipiac University Poll of more than 1,200 voters between May 28 and June 1 shows 55 percent believe it’s time to restart the state government with a clean slate.

While 28 percent say they think the current group is capable of ending Albany corruption, the remaining 17 percent say they don’t know.

The poll claims a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points.

Albany has continued to be plagued by scandals. Federal indictments this year of the state Senate and Assembly leaders, separately accused of influence peddling, cost both their leadership posts.
