Another terrorist attack, Syrian refugees and corruption in Albany are on the minds of a majority of New Yorkers, according to a Siena College poll released Monday.

Nearly 90 percent of New Yorkers are concerned there will be another terrorist attack in New York, says the report published by the Siena Research Institute in Loudonville, N.Y.

Sixty percent of New Yorkers say they are "very concerned" there will be a terrorist attack in the "near future," the report says.

Still 63 percent have not made lifestyle changes because of such fear, according to the report.

In the poll of voters registered in New York in a 52 to 39 percent margin, voters reject allowing Syrian refugees to enter the United States currently, says the report.

Also, nine out of ten poll respondents consider corruption in Albany as "a serious problem," by large margins, it says.
