Poll Shows Cuomo's Numbers Drop, But Not Support For ProposalsPosted: Updated:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo's favorability and job performance ratings took a dip from January, even though New Yorkers still show strong support for some of his priorities.
A Siena College poll released Monday shows the governor's favorability rating at 53-40 percent, down from 62-30 percent last month, when voters gave the Democrat some of the highest ratings during his two terms.
His job performance rating is a negative 45-53 percent, down from a positive 50-48 percent around the same time in January.
Meanwhile, New Yorkers overwhelmingly support Cuomo's proposals for the Child Victims Act, early voting, Dream Act, and making Roe v. Wade protections for abortion choice part of state law.
The poll, taken by phone February 5 to 8, also shows most New Yorkers trust special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and believe he should be allowed to continue unimpeded.
There's also a great deal of confidence in the FBI and the Supreme Court, but show a lack of faith in both Democrats and Republicans in Congress.
The poll of 823 registered New York voters has an overall margin of error of +/- 3.9 percentage points.
