50% of New York voters say Cuomo should not immediately resign, poll finds


A minority of voters, 35%, said that he should immediately resign, with 15% not sure, according to the poll, which was conducted March 8 through 12.

A majority of voters, 57%, said they were satisfied with the way that the governor has addressed allegations of sexual harassment, while 32% said they were not and 11% either didn’t know or didn’t have an opinion. Fifty-four percent of men said they were satisfied while 59% of women said the same.

    Still, more say that Cuomo has committed sexual harassment (35%) than those who say he has not (24%). A sizable 41% say they don’t know or have no opinion.

      The poll finds voters are increasingly likely to say they will not vote to reelect Cuomo for a fourth term. Only 34% of voters said they were prepared to reelect Cuomo if he runs for in 2022, while 52% say they would “prefer someone else.” In February, 46% of voters said that they vote to reelect him for a fourth term.

          The poll, which surveyed 805 voters, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points and was conducted by telephone.
