For a man who personally killed thousands of New Yorkers through his disastrous COVID-19 response and has allegedly spent a lifetime abusing women, this is a stunning indictment of the voters of New York – particularly Democrats.
Most New Yorkers don’t want Cuomo to step down. Even in a Quinnipiac University poll out this week, which was among Cuomo’s worst, more New Yorkers want him to stay in office (49%) than resign (43%). No other poll has had numbers that bad. Fewer voters (36%) believe he should be impeached and removed from office.
[…]Of course, Cuomo’s strength comes in large part from his Democratic base. Remember that if the rest of the electorate abandons him, New York is still a strongly blue state.In his worst rating recently (Quinnipiac’s favorable rating), his net favorability (favorable – unfavorable) stood at +18 points among Democrats. His net favorability rating among Black voters was +51 points. A mere 19% of Black voters and 23% of Democrats want him out of office.
