NEW YORK — A majority of New York voters, including nearly half of Republicans, believe Rep. George Santos should resign from Congress amid an ongoing scandal over his record of lying, according to a new poll released Monday.

Some 59% of voters in a new Siena College poll asked Santos to resign, compared to 17% who said he should remain in office. (The rest didn’t know or had no opinion).

Nearly half of Republicans, 49% overall, called for him to go, as did 54% of those who identified as politically conservative. More than 7 in 10 suburban voters said he should leave office, a tough result for Santos, whose 3rd district is mostly suburban Nassau County.

To the extent that Santos had any “support” in the polls, it was among Latino voters, of whom only 33% said he should definitely resign, while 24% said he should not. (Nearly half of Latino voters surveyed said they didn’t know or had no opinion, more than any other demographic group surveyed.)

Separately, Sienna also asked voters whether they had a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Santos. At -40, he had the worst net score ever in the poll, lower than even Donald Trump’s -33.

The online and telephone poll of 821 registered voters was conducted January 15-19 and has a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.
