Siena Poll Shows NY Gov. Cuomo's Favorability Dropping

Feb 12, 2018

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s poll numbers are down. In fact, according to the latest Siena College poll, the Democrat’s net favorability rating is down 19 points from January to February. His favorable rating is down from 62 percent to 53 percent and his unfavorable rating is up from 30 percent to 40 percent. 

Pollster Steve Greenberg tells WAMC’s Brian Shields the corruption and bribery trial of Cuomo’s former top aide Joseph Percoco may be one of the reasons for Cuomo’s lower poll numbers but there are other factors in play as well.
