And this is in deep-blue New York.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s approval rating is down by double digits weeks after the Democrat signed sweeping new gun control legislation, a new poll Wednesday says.
According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, Cuomo’s approval rating is at 59 percent, with 28 percent disapproving, down from last month’s sky-high 74 percent approval, with 13 percent disapproving of his performance in office.
Those numbers come after Cuomo scored a broad gun control package that included a strengthened version of the state’s assault weapons ban, a step he took in the wake of the December shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn.
