New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), who is facing multiple scandals involving his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and claims by a number of women that he sexually harassed them, is polling lower than a generic Democrat against a generic Republican challenger in the latest numbers out of Sienna College.
Cuomo would be up 48% to 38% against a Republican challenger for the governorship, while a generic Democrat would lead a Republican 55%-29%.
Attorney General Letitia James, who is relatively unknown in the state, had a larger margin than Cuomo, 46%-29%.
A plurality, but not a majority, of voters don’t think he should resign over the numerous allegations, which he has denied.
His poll numbers have improved slightly over the last month, with 51% saying he should not resign compared to 49% previously. The number who think he should resign has increased, however, from 37% in April to 41% in May.
