Some may be surprised to see Gov. Andrew Cuomo's favorability rating.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s favorability rating fell to 43 percent, according to a new Siena College poll of New York State registered voters.

“Now, for the first time ever, half of New Yorkers view Andrew Cuomo unfavorably. It’s his lowest favorability rating ever and his lowest-ever job performance as governor,” Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said in a press release. “And it is a dramatic drop in both ratings from last month.

Cuomo's favorability rating was 51 percent in last month's Siena Poll. In February of 2011, his favorability was 77 percent, according to data in a press release.

“Politically, Cuomo’s ratings drop is across the board, as he fell with Democrats, Republicans and independents. Geographically, his drop was much bigger downstate – New York City and the suburbs – than upstate, where his ratings were significantly lower previously,” Greenberg said. “The 43 percent of voters who view Cuomo favorably matches exactly the 43 percent of voters who view the State Assembly favorably, and the State Senate.”

The poll also found that over half believe Democrats in Congress should not include President Trump’s border wall funding to avoid a second partial government shutdown. 70 percent believe Trump shouldn't declare a national emergency to fund the
wall.

Trump’s favorability rating was 35 percent, up from 32 percent last month, according to the Siena College Poll.
