Albany, N.Y. - Governor Cuomo's poll numbers are taking a big hit after he released a budget blueprint with big tax cuts and the start of a corruption trial of one of his most trusted confidantes.
Como's favorability, job performance, and re-election, ratings fell by double digits in this month's Siena College poll.
“After hitting his second-term high favorability rating last month, Governor Cuomo’s favorability, job performance and re-elect ratings all hit significant speed bumps this month. With his favorable rating down to 53 percent from 62 percent and his unfavorable rating jumping to 40 percent from 30 percent, Cuomo’s net favorability rating is down 19 points,” said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg. “He’s down with Democrats, more with Republicans, and even more with independents.
The good news for the governor is at the GOP candidates vying for the Republican party's nomination are relatively unknown Statewide the bull suggested if the election were held tomorrow, Cuomo would win handily.
