A poll by the Siena Research Institute shows New York State residents give Gov. Andrew Cuomo mixed grades. According to the poll there was slippage in Cuomo’s job performance and generic re-elect ratings. By a 64-28 percent margin, voters say Cuomo has been an effective governor. However, on seven of eight specific issues, only between 15 and 26 percent of voters said that issue has improved since Cuomo’s been governor, while between 24 and 45 percent of voters said it has gotten worse. The poll was based on the opinions of 813 registered voters. The poll asked about ensuring equal rights for New Yorkers, New York’s business climate, lessening corruption in state government, state government effectiveness, personal economic well-being, quality of public education, economic well-being of most New Yorkers, and fairness of the state’s tax policy.
