Upstaters increasing think New York is headed in the wrong direction for the first time in two years, according to a newly released Quinnipiac Poll.

By a 46-43 margin, voters said the Empire State isn’t on the right track, but those in Upstate have turned more negative, saying the state is headed in the wrong direction by a nearly 2-to-1 margin.

The poll also indicated hydrofracking opposition has reached a new high in the Empire State. 45 percent of voters oppose the controversial drilling process, while 37 percent supported it.

New York has had a de facto moratorium on fracking since 2008. Pollsters say the only major groups to support hydrofracking are Republicans and downstate suburbanites.
