The New York Times & Siena College Research Institute toCollaborate on 2013 New York City Mayoral Election Surveys

The Siena College Research Institute (SRI) and The New York Times will collaborate on polling in the 2013 New York City mayoral election. The first “New York Times/Siena College Poll” will be released within the next two weeks and will gauge the attitude of New York City voters on the candidates and issues in the major party primary elections, which are nine weeks away.

“Siena College has an outstanding track record with conducting state and local election polls across New York,” said Marjorie Connelly, editor of News Surveys, The New York Times. “We look forward to working with them to provide our readers with accurate and timely information about the mayoral election and issues that matter to New York City voters.”

“Siena College could not be more proud of this collaborative effort between the Siena Research Institute and The New York Times,” said Siena College President Fr. Kevin Mullen, O.F.M, Ph.D. “This is a wonderful opportunity for SRI to work with one of the world’s top news organizations, a New York institution. We are pleased that we will be able to help contribute a part of ‘all the news that’s fit to print.’ ”

“Over the last several years, no public pollster has covered New York politics and issues – statewide, regionally and locally – with greater frequency, depth or accuracy than Siena,” said Dr. Don Levy, Director of the Siena Research Institute. “We have been fortunate to have worked – and continue to work – with many wonderful media partners on local surveys across the state. Working with The Times provides SRI with an opportunity to collaborate with some of the best journalist/pollsters in the world and we look forward to developing and providing data that will help inform New York Times readers.”

The New York Times has conducted national and local polls since 1975.

The Siena College Research Institute, directed by Don Levy, Ph.D., conducts political, economic, social and cultural research primarily in New York State. SRI, an independent, non-partisan research institute, subscribes to the American Association of Public Opinion Research Code of Professional Ethics and Practices.
