Quinnipiac Poll: Cuomo’s Popularity Plunges 15 Percent

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s popularity has slipped, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll.

This is likely due to Cuomo’s aggressive advocacy for a gun control bill that he signed into law earlier this month.

The poll found Cuomo’s job approval rating dropped from 74 percent to 59 percent, and his approval standing among Republican voters dropped from 68-18 to 44-43 in January.

The gun control measure is seen as one tangible example of Cuomo tacking to the political left, possibly ahead of a presidential bid in 2016, in the new agenda and rhetoric he outlined in his State of the State Address on Jan. 9.
