New York, May 22 (ANI): Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, infamous for his involvement in a high-profile prostitution ring, may not be able to return to office as a statewide candidate, as he has fallen out of favour with New Yorkers .At least two-thirds of them say they don't want him back in office.

A Marist poll announced this conclusion..

Following the scandal, Spitzer received intense media coverage and had even expressed a desire to start a TV career, though he says that he misses public office. However, he insists he has no such aspiration in the near future.

"He has become more visible lately but not more electable," New York Post quoted Marist polling director Lee Miringoff, as saying.

"Eliot Spitzer's attempt to reconnect with New York voters is not paying office in the short run," he said.

After the scandal broke out, the much-married Spitzer's nemesis, call-girl Ashley Dupre had expressed her support for him saying that he deserved a second chance. New York clearly doesn't share her views. (ANI)
