Gov. Cuomo is backed by an astronomical 77 percent of New York voters, despite a rancid economy and a cut- to-the-bone state budget plan that
could lead to 10,000 state workers' being laid off, according to a poll released yesterday.
The Siena College survey found Cuomo with the highest approval rating ever for a governor in six years of state polling.
While voters expressed opposition to Cuomo's proposed cuts to local school districts, CUNY and SUNY, they still backed his overall plan, 72 to 25
Also check out the 52% approval rating
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. 52% is impressive for a Republican in such a Liberal state as New Jersey.
Maybe the people of this great nation are waking up to the fact that excessively larger and bureaucratic government drive down jobs, investment,
entrepreneurship, and drive up welfare, poverty, and homelessness. Andrew Cuomo is doing things which are going to hurt the people of New York but
they know it has to be done for their state to revive itself. They are mature enough to understand that fact and support a man who is determined
enough to take such a potentially deadly course as to try and correct the problem by taking on big labor and the bureaucrats.
Hopefully if Cuomo and Christie can pull their states financial situation together this decade we can see those two states enter a new era of
prosperity, investment, and job growth.
