Approval Rate Plummets. That is bad news for Kathy Hochul. A Siena College poll finds that only 36 percent of New Yorkers approve of her. That is down 10 percent from the most recent canvass. Respondents faulted her positions on crime and economic issues. A particular hotspot is the 600 Million allocation for the Bills stadium. While she continues to lead among voters, she faces a weak field of candidates. All in all it is a dismal rating. And she claims she does not pay attention to poll numbers. She should. Clearly she is out of sync with everyday New Yorkers concerns. Time will tell if it will haunt her in November. Approval Rate Plummets. Hochul is in trouble with the voting public !!
