Siena Poll Confirms What Conservatives Already Recognized: Cuomo Fatigue Is Showing
Brooklyn, NY – Today’s Siena Poll confirms what Conservatives suspected during the latest legislative session; Governor Andrew Cuomo’s popularity is declining. Chairman Gerard Kassar noted that Governor Cuomo’s support of granting illegal immigrants a driver’s license, letting killer’s out of prison, ending cash bail for non-violent offenses, congestion pricing and the plastic bag surcharge are contributing to his declining popularity.
While the Siena Poll showed support for certain well-intentioned items, for example, the farmworkers labor rights bill and the lowering of carbon emissions, support of these bills will also decline when the costs to implement hits the consumer’s wallets.
Chairman Kassar noted “while Governor Cuomo believes this has been his most productive legislative session yet, the Siena Poll results show that Governor Andrew Cuomo is not fully in sync with New Yorkers and that includes many in his own Democratic Party.”
