ALBANY – A new poll found that the majority of New Yorkers feel Governor Andrew Cuomo should be impeached if he doesn’t resign first.

Polling data released Wednesday by the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion found that 59 percent of New York residents believe Cuomo should resign.

If he doesn’t resign, the majority say he should be impeached by the state legislature.

On Tuesday, New York Attorney General Letitia James released her report into sexual harassment allegations against Cuomo, detailing several accounts from accusers who have gone public.

Investigators hired specifically for this case said they corroborated the accounts of at least 11 women.

Cuomo denied many of the allegations, saying he never touched anyone inappropriately. Those he didn’t deny, like kissing women on their cheeks and calling them names like “sweetheart,” were innocent or overblown, he said.

As for his re-election projections, Marist says chances are “bleak” with only 11 percent of New Yorkers saying they would vote for the incumbent.

The full polling data is posted online at maristpoll.marist.edu.
