Voters expressed strong support for Governor Cuomo in the poll. 50% of registered voters say Cuomo should not resign against 35% who say he should. A similar number also says he can do his job effectively in spite of investigations into his conduct as governor.
The Siena Research Institute polled 805 registered voters on a variety of topics. 74% of New Yorkers, for example, support President Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID Relief Plan.
Read the full report here:
Democratic leaders across the spectrum have called for Cuomo’s resignation, including Senators Chuck Schumer and Kristen Gillibrand, while President Biden has called for patience while Attorney General Letitia James completes her investigation.
In spite of strong support for Governor Cuomo’s resistance to resigning, dark clouds are on the reelection horizon. Only 34% of those polled look forward to voting for him, if he runs for reelection, while a majority, 52%, prefer someone else.
