Poll: Hochul, Biden, Favorability Hit Rock Bottom in New York

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul's favorability and job approval has dropped to the lowest rating ever, according to a new independent poll released Thursday, which shows incumbent President Joe Biden's ratings have also hit rock bottom in the state.


The Siena College poll found that Hochul's favorability rating was 38-49%, while her job approval rating was 44-50%. Both were down from a previous poll and the lowest since she took office in August 2021. 

Among Democrats, Hochul has a 2-1 favorability rating and even stronger job approval rating. Still, she’s viewed unfavorably by 81% of Republicans and 61% of independents, while 84% of Republicans and 63% of independents disapprove of the job she’s doing as governor, according to the poll.

"When it comes to various Hochul characteristics, the partisan divide remains between Democrats on one side and Republicans joined by independents on the other side," Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said in a statement. "Democrats say Hochul cares about people like them, works hard, is a decisive leader, and honest. Republicans and independents don’t agree."

It's so nice to see everybody united in despising these two.
