Governor Cuomo continues to enjoy high approval ratings.

The latest Siena College Poll found that Cuomo has a 71 percent favorability rating, including a 58 percent approval rate from Republicans, which is unchanged from last month. He also had a 60 percent job performance rating which is the same as December.

The poll also indicates that 83 percent of New York voters favor increasing state minimum wage and 59 percent support public-campaign financing.

To put these poll numbers in perspective, according to recent voter registration records there are approximately 11,477,613 registered voters in NYS. Of those, 5,649,934 voters are registered Democrat, and 2,826,913 Republican. This poll is based on 676 registered voters in NYS who even bothered to respond to their questions. I don't consider this small number of respondents to be any indication of the voters feelings about this Governor and his underhanded signing of legislation that was rammed through the NYS Senate and Assembly at 11:30PM with NO thought to the voters Constitutional Rights. I would be willing to bet that Joseph Stalin's poll numbers showed that a large number of Soviet citizens approved of the job he was doing too.
