New poll finds majority of New Yorkers, Dems want Cuomo to resign

A new poll found 59% of New Yorkers want Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign from office, including 52% of Democrats, following the explosive investigation by state Attorney General Letitia James into sexual harassment allegations against the state’s chief executive by 11 women.

The Marist Poll released Wednesday, showed that if Cuomo declines to step down, 59% of New Yorkers say the state Legislature should impeach him. Less than one-in-three (32%) surveyed said Cuomo should serve out the rest of his term.
