According to a Siena Poll released on Monday, Gov. Cuomo has a favorability rate among likely voters of 62 percent to 30 percent, the highest in his eight years as governor.  The poll was released shortly before the Governor released his eighth state budget plan.

The poll also found that Cuomo’s job performance rating is up to 50 percent to 48 percent, up from 45 percent to 54 percent in November. It also found that 55 percent of likely voters are likely to vote to re-elect him. The Governor is expected to seek a third term this coming fall.
