Through 2021 so far, Governor Andrew Cuomo has faced scandal after scandal, which has potentially irreparably damaged his image for a future Governor campaign, a new poll reveals.

A poll conducted by the Siena College Research Institute from June 22 to June 29 has revealed that more than 60 percent of the 809 voters surveyed would like to see governor Cuomo either resign immediately, or not run for office again, the Wall Street Journal reports.

According to the poll, 39 percent of those surveyed said Cuomo should finish his term, but not run again, amidst investigations into the numerous sexual assault allegations by Cuomo’s current and former aides.

23 percent of voters said the governor should resign immediately, while 33 percent said he should run for reelection.

As an impeachment inquiry continues in the House, 45 percent of voters said that Cuomo should not be impeached, while 35 percent said they supported an impeachment.

"Since his poll numbers took a significant hit earlier this year, Cuomo’s favorability, job performance and re-elect ratings have remained largely stable the last few months," said poll spokesman Steven Greenberg. "But 16 months from the next gubernatorial election and less than a year from the primary, only one-third of New Yorkers—including just 43 percent of Democrats—think Cuomo should run for re-election."

At a Tuesday night fundraiser for his campaign committee, Cuomo stated that he wanted to remain in office for another four years, according to attendees.

If successful, Cuomo would be the first four-term governor since Nelson Rockefeller in 1970. Cuomo’s father, Mario Cuomo, attempted to do such in 1994, but lost to Republican George Pataki.

The survey found that voters’ top issues for state lawmakers were crime, education, economic equity, racial justice and infrastructure.
