Cuomo favorability low, but he remains strong vs. Nixon

Cuomo favorability low, but he remains strong vs. Nixon

Gov. Cuomo's large lead over Cynthia Nixon has begun to slip, a new Siena College poll found.

A month ago, Cuomo held a 66 percent to 19 percent lead over Nixon. "In a potential Democratic primary matchup, right now Cuomo leads Cynthia Nixon 58 to 27 percent, a 31-point lead".

The dip comes following the corruption conviction of former Cuomo top aide and pal Joe Percoco.

"Since January, when he enjoyed the best favorability rating of his second term, Cuomo's favorability rating has dropped net 27 points", Steven Greenberg, a spokesman for the Siena poll, said in a statement.

In their view of Cuomo, 49 percent had a favorable one and 44 percent view him negatively.

The poll also reports Cuomo leads over both Republican challengers Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro and state Senator John DeFrancisco, as well as fellow Democrat Cynthia Nixon, in his bid for reelection. "The race has just started and there's five months to go". He was most popular in New York City, while voters were split in the city's suburbs.

Cuomo's favorability rating is now 49 percent positive and 44 percent negative - tied for worst in his eight years as governor.

He noted that in 2014, Cuomo beat little-known primary challenger Zephyr Teachout by 29 points while Nixon trails by 31 points before the campaigns have really heated up. "In a variation of Bette Davis' famous line: Fasten your seatbelts; it's going to be a bumpy ride".

Cuomo is still running strong among New York City and downstate suburban Democrats.

"Early on, Cuomo seems to be in a strong position to again be the Democratic Party's standard bearer", Greenberg said.

Cuomo beat Zephyr Teachout (pictured) in the 2014 primary by 29 points while Nixon now trails by 31 points.

Nixon, who won an Emmy for her role in HBO's "Sex in the City" (1998-2004), narrowed the head-to-head gap between her and the incumbent by 16 points, from 47 to 31 percentage points.

The Siena College poll was conducted April 8-12 to 692 NY registered voters.
