A Siena College Research Institute poll released last week finds that Gov. Cuomo’s favorability rating with New York voters is at its highest since he was sworn in for a second term in January 2015. The poll found Cuomo’s favorability rating with voters stands at 60 percent, with 34 percent holding an unfavorable view. The Governor’s job performance rating is rising as well, hitting 50%.
The poll also shows support for the Governor’s proposed agenda, with strong support for his proposals to extend the “millionaire’s tax,” to allow ride-hailing apps like Lyft and Uber to operate outside of New York City, to expanding the middle-class child care tax credit, and to provide free tuition to SUNY and CUNY institutions to families that earn less than $125,000.
