Governor Cuomo's Job Approval Rating In Latest Siena Poll: 42% Approve, 57% Disapprove

Capital Confidential led with Cuomo's "favorability" rating when they wrote up the story about the latest Siena poll today (it is 58%), but they should have led with his job approval rating.

Here are the job approval numbers:

How would you rate the job Andrew Cuomo is doing as Governor?

Excellent - 7%
Good - 35%
Fair - 40%
Poor - 17%
Don't Know - 1%

The way these polls get analyzed, excellent and good become the "approval" number, fair and poor become the "disapproval" number.

Take a look at those approval numbers for Cuomo just six weeks after he won re-election with 54% of the vote.

He's underwater in approval by 15%.

Cuomo released a letter from one of his hacks yesterday to NYSED Commissioner King and Regents Chancellor Tisch that has such a wide-ranging agenda, he'd need to have 80%+ approval to ram that through.

But the reality is, he's got a 42% approval rating.

This is an unpopular governor with an unpopular agenda.

He CAN be beaten when he tries to ram through his education reform agenda next year.

He's at 42% approval.


  1. Using cuomo's own statistics if he were an educater he would be fired with a 42% approval rating.

  2. Hoping towards deciding and handling of various prospects which are generally considered to be so evident, and also then moving to afterward there would be lot more things to be regarded within this.
