Poll: 35% think Cuomo should resign, 57% say he’s responded appropriately to allegations of harassment

The number of voters who want to see Gov. Andrew Cuomo resign is dwindling- even as his political support evaporates.

“I was elected by the people of New York,” a defiant Gov. Cuomo said last week during a press conference.

Now, data from the latest Siena College Research Institute poll finds that his favorability rating has dipped. That said, only 35% of New Yorkers want to see him resign.


The favorability rating of 43% represents a low point for his recent term. The poll found that 45% viewed him unfavorably.

“Voters appear to be able to compartmentalize how they feel about Cuomo,” Siena spokesperson Steve Greenberg said in a statement. “While their views on him generally- favorability, job performance, re-elect- took a significant hit this month, voters’ views on Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic remain largely positive, except for his handling of nursing home death data.”

A surprising 57% of respondents to the poll said they are satisfied with the way Cuomo has addressed the allegations- while 32% say they are not. To that end, 48% of those responding to the survey think he can still effectively do his job.
