Siena Poll: Governor Cuomo's favorability rating is down

Nixon won the endorsement of the liberal Working Families Party on Saturday, an influential minor party that Cuomo had previously fought hard to win. Among Democrats, one-third view her favorably, 23% unfavorably and 44% had no opinion. "This new Siena poll has some good news for Governor Cuomo and some bad news for Governor Cuomo". That matches the lowest level - in July 2015. Broken down by region, 69 percent of registered voters living upstate gave the governor a dim rating for his job performance, while 62 percent of downstate suburban voters held the same view.

How does Cuomo stack up against the competition?

If the fall Democratic primary were held now, Cuomo would beat Nixon, an activist on education and other issues as well as a star of the "Sex and the City" TV series, by 58 percent to 27 percent. It is down, however, significantly from last month.

That's down from 66% to 19% last month before Nixon declared her candidacy. We also see that Cynthia Nixon still has a lot of work to do to become known to NY voters. Just 49% now view Cuomo favorably and 44% unfavorably. Schumer went from a favorable rating of 54 to 36 percent in March to 53 to 38 percent, and Gillibrand moved from 49 to 25 percent in March to 48 to 29 percent this month.

Rebecca Castigan is senior advisor to the Nixon campaign. "With momentum on our side, we are focused on the work ahead of us and introducing Cynthia's plan for a better NY all across the state".

He leads GOP front-runner Marcus Molinaro by a 57% to 31% margin and Senate Deputy Republican Majority Leader John DeFrancisco by a similar margin.

Molinaro's campaign emailed a statement saying Cuomo is more vulnerable than at any time during his two terms. "It's a clear example of his performance, failing the economy upstate, continued corruption and an MTA system that is completely crumbling".

The Siena College poll of 692 registered NY voters was conducted April 8-12. It had a margin of error of 4.3 percentage point.
