Andrew Cuomo, moderate and reformist Democratic governor of a blue state, given high marks even by Republicans. Until now:
A poll shows New York Republican voters for the first time disapprove of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s performance following the Democrat’s push for a gun-control bill.
The Quinnipiac University poll finds 55% of Republican voters disapprove of Cuomo, with 27% approving of his job performance.
In December, 74% of Republicans approved of Cuomo’s performance.
Losing GOP support in a state rife with Democrats is unlikely to deter Cuomo from pushing his gun-control agenda. But it ought to serve as a warning to moderate Democrats in the House and Senate (remember them?) as they look toward 2014.
Oh, wait — it already has.
