ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A new poll finds that most voters in the state say it was bad for New York when Amazon's dropped plans to put one of its second headquarters in Queens.

The Siena College poll released Monday found that 67 percent of registered voters surveyed said the internet retailer's decision last month was detrimental to New York. Sixty-one percent support the state and city again offering Amazon up to $3 billion in incentives to create 25,000 jobs if Amazon reconsiders.

The company scrapped plans to redevelop a Long Island City neighborhood for one of its second HQs after the deal met mounting opposition from local elected officials who mostly objected to the incentives package.

The poll of 700 registered voters was conducted March 10-14. It has margin of error of 4.2 percentage points.
