ALBANY, N.Y. (WKBW) — A new Sienna College poll gives Governor Cuomo and Senator Schumer their lowest rating ever.

Here's the breakdown of the numbers:
Cuomo's favorability rating now stands at 43-50 percent, that's down from 51-43 percent last month. His job performance rating fell to 35-64 percent, down from 43-56 percent.
Senator Chuck Schumer saw his favorability rating drop to 47-46 percent, down from 53-39 percent in January.

According to Sienna pollster Steven Greenberg, "Politically, Cuomo's ratings drop is across the board, as he fell with Democrats, Republicans and independents. Geographically, his drop was much bigger downstate – New York City and the suburbs – than upstate, where his ratings were significantly lower previously."

He goes on to say, "The 43 percent of voters who view Cuomo favorably matches exactly the 43 percent of voters who view the State Assembly favorably, and the State Senate."
