Just when you thought New York Governor Andrew Cuomo couldn’t get worse news, a shocking report shows he has dropped out of favorability with even more New Yorkers.
Fox News reports that “Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s approval, favorable ratings and reelection numbers among New Yorkers are all sinking.”
“The three-term Democratic governor faces a chorus of calls to step down amid numerous sexual harassment allegations from former staffers and a federal probe into whether his administration covered up the deaths of nursing home residents from the coronavirus,” continues the report.
A mere 40% of New Yorkers have a “favorable opinion” of Cuomo in a new Siena College survey. Fifty-two percent say they see their governor in an unfavorable light. “That’s down from 43%-45% in March and 56%-39% in February,” notes Fox News.

“Voters to Andrew Cuomo: ‘we’ve got some good news and some bad news.’ On the one hand, his favorability rating is now the lowest it has ever been, with more than 50% of voters viewing Cuomo unfavorably for the very first time in a Siena College poll. On the other hand, a majority of voters – including Democrats by two-to-one and a plurality of independents – continue to say that Cuomo should not resign, and a similar majority say he can still effectively do his job as governor,” said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg.
