Loudonville, NY (WKBW-TV) - The beginning of 2014 is starting off strong for Governor Andrew Cuomo. A new Siena College Poll released Monday shows Cuomo's favorability and job performance ratings bounce back to their highest levels in nearly a year. The poll also shows Cuomo leads by almost 50 points over both Donald Trump and Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino.

New York voters overwhelmingly supported many of the proposals highlighted in Cuomo's State of the State address last week including the legalization of medical marijuana for patients suffering from a serious illness.
