Months into first full term, new poll reveals how New York voters feel about Governor Hochul

In the 2nd month of her first full term in office, New York Governor Kathy Hochul’s approval rating significantly declined, as per a recent poll.

Based on a Siena College poll issued on Monday, Feb. 27, Hochul has a 56 to 40% approval rating across the state’s registered voters, up from a 56 to 36 percent favorable rating in January.

The poll indicated that Hochul’s favorability decreased significantly from 48 to 42% in January to 46 to 43 percent.

Voters were asked which topics they believed the state legislature should concentrate on, and 36% of respondents indicated crime, led by cost of living at 27% and low-cost housing at 13%. Equal opportunity, the environment, and public health all received single-digit responses.

Two-thirds of voters claimed crime is a significant problem in their neighborhood, and 92% of voters stated crime is a serious problem throughout the state.

According to Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg, crime and the expense of living were voters’ top 2 concerns for Albany in December as the current session got started. They still want Hochul and the Legislature to give these 2 issues high priority.

Republicans, independents, residents of downstate areas, and residents of upstate states place crime as their number one issue; yet, for Democrats and residents of New York City, the expense of living comes out on top.

When questioned about particular budget suggestions from Hochul, 2 enjoyed broad support from both parties: reducing the 0.08 % DWI threshold and putting minimum wage hikes on the rate of inflation.
