A recent Marist poll shows Gov. David Paterson with approval rating among New Yorkers of 17 percent.
A Spaniard by birth, Victor Serna left home shy of his 14th birthday and entered the monastery to become a Marist brother.
Forty-eight percent of men said in a Marist poll this month that they are “very enthusiastic” about voting, the most of any group.
The poll comes from the McClatchy News Service and was conducted by Marist.
