Are you enjoying the honeymoon with Andrew Cuomo?

andrew cuomo mediumThe Siena poll out today reports that Andrew Cuomo's favorability is at 70 percent -- it's highest point since June 2009. And when respondents were asked who they trusted to do the right thing -- Cuomo or the legislature -- the governor was picked 68-17.

Also possibly of interest: 50 percent or more of respondents in every ideological group had Cuomo pegged as "moderate."

On race

The poll also asked people about race relations in New York State: "As we look to next week's commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday, how would you describe the state of race relations in New York State? Would you say they are excellent, good, fair, or poor?"

Overall, 55 percent respondents said race relations were excellent or good. 43 percent said they were fair or poor.

Among white respondents the split was 60/40. Among African-Americans it was 36/63.

Wait until Gov. Cuomo submits his executive budget. Not only will the honeymoon be over, but many Democrats will be seeking a divorce lawyer.

Oh, come on. Of course Cuomo has a high favorability rating; we just elected him! Now how can anybody possibly rate his performance as governor after less than a month in office? That's plain silly.

I have been a N.Y.S. employee in the Department of Correct-
ions for 26 years. I have earned every penney that I have been
paid and would invite the governor or anyone else to see what
I do. I have earned and paid for my pention!. Now to help the
State I would be willing to make some compromizes. How-
ever if people should be cut from the work force how about
cutting folks who make much more than me and do nothing.
How about cutting assembly and Senate aides who are not
needed. In addition Senators and Assembly how about cut-
ting your pay and perks! Lets be reasonable with everyone.
