Poll: GOP NYers ditch Democrat Cuomo after gun law


ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A poll shows New York Republican voters for the first time disapprove of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's performance following the Democrat's push for a gun-control bill.
The Quinnipiac University poll finds 55 percent of Republican voters disapprove of Cuomo, with 27 percent approving of his job performance.
In December, 74 percent of Republicans approved of Cuomo's performance.
In January, Cuomo presented a State of the State address that included a more liberal policy agenda. Cuomo's goals include a women's agenda with a strengthening of abortion laws.
Cuomo has a 49-percent approval among independent voters. Sixty-nine percent of Democrats approve of his performance two years into the job.
The poll questioned 1,165 votes March 11 through Sunday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
