Washington (CNN) – The tough new gun restrictions pushed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo may have caused a hit to his approval rating, according to a poll released Wednesday, though the Democrat still remains popular with voters in the Empire State.
The Quinnipiac University survey indicated that 59% of New York voters approve of the job Cuomo is doing as governor, down from a 74% approval rating in a poll released last month.
Republican approval has dropped sharply, from 68% in mid-December to 44% in Wednesday’s poll. But even support among Democrats was down somewhat, from 82% in December to 74% in the latest survey.
Women gave Cuomo higher marks than men. Sixty-four percent of women, and 54% of men, approved of his job performance. Both figures were down from the poll last month.
Among gun owners, Cuomo’s approval rating was underwater. Fifty percent of voters in households with guns disapproved of his job performance, compared to 40% who approved. In non-gun households, Cuomo was more popular â€“ 68% approved of the governor, compared to 19% who disapproved.
