According to the latest Siena College poll, 62% of New York Democrats and 74% of Republicans feel that the 2024 presidential election is the most important of their lifetimes.

But pollster Steve Greenberg told Capital Tonight that independent voters, those who are not affiliated with a political party, don’t see the election as being quite so significant.

“Interestingly, of independents, 45% say yeah, 42% say no. So, the more partisan you are, the more important this election is,” Greenberg said. 

Greenberg spoke with Capital Tonight host Susan Arbetter about the poll.
