New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s favorability rating fell to an all-time low following his passage of sweeping legislation expanding abortion access, a poll revealed Monday.
The Democratic governor’s approval rating fell by a remarkable 8 percentage points in just one month, from 51 percent to 43 percent, according to the Siena College poll.
Those who view Mr. Cuomo unfavorably also experienced a substantial leap, from 43 percent last month to 50 percent now.
“Now, for the first time ever, half of New Yorkers view Andrew Cuomo unfavorably.
It’s his lowest favorability rating ever and his lowest-ever job performance as governor,” said Siena College poll spokesman Steven Greenberg.
