ALBANY - A new poll shows the percentage of New York voters who say scandal-plagued Gov. David Paterson should serve out his term has edged upward.

The Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows that 50 percent said Paterson should serve until the end of his term rather  than resign. Another 39 percent said he should resign, with 11 percent undecided.

A Quinnipiac poll released last Friday showed 46 percent of voters said Paterson should complete his term while 42 percent said he should resign. In a poll released earlier last week that number was 61 percent.

The poll questioned 1,454 New Yorkers Friday through Monday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
