LOUDONVILLE – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s favorability, job performance and re-election ratings all continue to head in a downward trend.

According to a newly released poll conducted by the Siena Research Institution at Siena College, Cuomo’s favorability rating is now negative 40-52 percent, down from 43-45 percent in March and 56-39 percent in February.

However, at the same time the poll found a majority of New Yorkers continue to say both that he should not resign, 51-37 percent (50-35 percent in April), and that he can effectively do his job as governor, 52-38 percent (48-34 percent in March).

Voters approve of Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic, 60-32 percent, virtually unchanged from 60-33 percent last month. By a 44-22 percent margin, voters think Cuomo has committed sexual harassment, with 34 percent undecided. Last month, a plurality, 41 percent, were undecided, with voters thinking he had 35-24 percent.

Cuomo’s job performance rating is negative 42-56 percent, down from 46-52 percent in March and 51-47 percent in February. Right now, 33 percent are prepared to re-elect Cuomo next year if he runs, compared to 57 percent who prefer ‘someone else,’ down from 34-52 percent in March and 46-45 percent in February.
