Siena poll: A record number of New Yorkers view Cuomo unfavorably

More than half of New York voters view Gov. Andrew Cuomo unfavorably, according to a new Siena College Research Institute poll released Monday morning. It's the first time the governor's unfavorability rating has surpassed 50 percent in Siena's polling. The results come as the governor is under investigation by state Attorney General Tish James, who is looking into sexual harassment accusations and other matters, and as the state Assembly's Judiciary Committee is looking into possible impeachment proceedings. Only 40 percent of respondents say they view Cuomo favorably, while 52 percent view him unfavorably.
