Results of a Marist Poll released Tuesday shows Governor Kathy Hochul has had a positive impact since taking office.
Her approval rating has risen 18 percentage points with a 49% approval rating, but 20% say they are unsure.
Results in comparison to former Governor Andrew Cuomo show that 77% of New York residents do not want him to run again, and 74% of Democrats agree.
With two hypothetical Democratic primaries in the poll taken by New Yorkers, Hochul led the 2022 race for governor.
The hypotheticals were a race with Attorney General Letitia James and New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams. In the three-way race, 44% of the vote was for Hochul, 28% for James, and 15% for Williams.
Neither James or Williams has announced their official plans to run against Hochul.
Though Hochul appeared to obtain positive support in the form of voters, 54% of voters said they think the state is going in the wrong direction.
882 New York residents were polled with a 4.8% margin of error and 389 Democrats were polled with a 6.9% margin of error.
