The good news for Eliot Spitzer: 59% of New Yorkers think he's "a fundamentally good person who did a bad thing."

More good news: 85% of New Yorkers think he made the right decision to resign. In other words, he just made the most popular decision of his governorship. I guess that's a good thing.

The bad news: 64% say he should be charged with a crime.

By the way, the poll also showed that David Paterson starts with a favorable impression from 30% of the state, unfavorable from 8%, with the rest neutral or lacking an impression.
