The Quinnipiac poll found 75 percent thought MTA's response to Sandy was "excellent" or "good," compared with just 37 percent who said that of New York utility companies.

"High marks for the first responders and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. But most New Yorkers think the utilities failed their storm-response test," Quinnipiac pollster Maurice Carroll said in a statement announcing the results of the survey.

Sixty-six percent of the Quinnipiac respondents said they approved of the Red Cross's handling of Sandy relief efforts.
