Half of voters in New York say that Cuomo should not resign from his post despite the fact that more than a half-dozen claims of sexual harassment have been leveled at him.
However, only a third think he should consider running for a fourth term according to a brand new poll released on Monday.
The Democrat governor saw his approval rating touch its lowest point in the Siena College poll, with only 43% of New York registered voters having a favorable view of him. That’s down from 56% in February and a high of 77% reached last year during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the poll. The governor has hit the low mark twice before.
Cuomo’s public-opinion polls are significant because the governor has steadfastly refused to quit despite calls by Democrat leaders in the New York legislature, a majority of the U.S. House delegation, and both senators, including Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Seven women have accused Cuomo of sexual misconduct or inappropriate behavior. Most are former aides to the governor.
What’s really strange is that voters are still supporting Cuomo’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, despite the fact his policies caused the deaths of thousands upon thousands of individuals in nursing homes, which he later lied about.
If that’s truly the case, I’m disappointed in humanity.
