A new Wall Street Journal/NBC 4 New York/Marist poll in New York finds that only 37% of registered voters think Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is doing a good or excellent job, while 59% think he’s doing a fair or poor job, in part due to concerns of corruption in state government.
Key findings: “Despite new ethics rules that Mr. Cuomo proposed and legislators passed in April, half of those polled said they don’t think he is changing Albany for the better. About 40% said he is making improvements, down from 47% last September. Forty-three percent said state government has become more corrupt over the past few years. Just 8% said it has become less corrupt.”
