State News

ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) – Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Sen. Chuck Schumer have higher favorability ratings in the latest Siena poll.

According to the poll, Cuomo’s is up to 46-48 percent, compared to the previous rating of 43-50 percent in February.

“Cuomo saw his favorability rating tick up to near break-even, up from the lowest favorability rating he ever had. His job performance rating, negative 38-61 percent, also moved up a little, although it remains significantly below water,” Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said. 

Schumer’s rating is 51-41 percent, which is up from 47-46 percent.

In terms of state groups — the Assembly’s favorability rating is 44-35 percent and the State Senate’s is 46-38 percent. Both saw improvements from last month.

On another topic, most people in New York say parents should be required to have their kids vaccinated, no matter what their religious beliefs are.

“Four out of five voters say that parents – regardless of their religious beliefs – should be required to have their children vaccinated for measles and other diseases before they can attend school. The ‘weakest’ support is among independents, who support it 70-28 percent,” Greenberg said.

Overall, the rating for that was 79-18 percent.
