Poll: GOP Support Waning For Gov. Cuomo

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The latest poll shows New York’s Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo is losing some of his strong support among Republicans, while gaining Democratic and independent support.

Pollster Lee Miringoff said such a partisan divide even for the popular governor after six months in office is common.

Overall, the NY1/YNN/Marist College Poll shows Cuomo has a still very high favorability rating of 67 percent. That’s down from 72 percent in May.

His job performance rating of 56 percent is better than May’s 54 percent.

Republicans helped give the Democrat a near record winning margin in November. But Republican support dropped in favorability, job performance, leadership and whether Albany is changing.

The poll questioned 600 adults July 28-31. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 points.

    The GOP has become a pox on our country. They are now controlled by their extremeists who are so out of touch with middle American they have become moot. The best thing Gov. Cuomo is wear this lack of support by the GOP as a badge of honor!

    Who cares what the GOP thinks? They keep ruining our country with petty politics and posturing. The best thing we can do for this country for the next few years is completely ignore them!
