Governor Cuomo does well in latest polling from Siena College

Voters continue to give Governor Andrew Cuomo a passing grade for his handling of the Coronavirus Pandemic, according to new polling out of Siena College.

It was released Friday morning, and showed that Cuomo’s poll numbers are changing little, even as cases increase in the New York City area.

The survey showed that 73% of voters approve of his handling of the virus. It even includes 46% of Republican voters.

His favorabiliy rating with voters stands at 59% to 33%. That’s a slight decline from his high a few months ago at 65f%.

Unsurprisingly, Democrat Joe Biden has a popularity lead in New York State, according to the poll.

“New Yorkers, who have not given their support to a Republican presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan won re-election in 1984, appear poised to provide Biden with New York’s 29 Electoral College votes in less than five weeks,” said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg.
