BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - The majority of New Yorkers are not happy with the job President Trump is doing one year into office, but most also don't want to see several prominent New Yorkers challenge him for his job.
Thirty percent of registered voters approve of the way President Trump is handling his job, according to a new poll by Quinnipiac University. Sixty-five percent disapprove.
But when asked if Governor Andrew Cuomo should challenge Trump, the answer is an overwhelming no. Just 28 percent of voters think he should run for the nation's highest office, while 63 percent believe he should not. In July, 38 percent of respondents wanted the two-term governor to run for the White House.
Support for a presidential run by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a loud critic of President Trump, is similar. The Quinnipiac poll found 58 percent of voters don not believe she should run for the White House, while 28 percent support a potential run.
The poll also shows support for U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, the majority leader, has hit a 19-year low in Quinnipiac polling. Fifty-three percent of respondents approve of the job he is doing in Washington, while 35 percent do not.
