Voters' views of Cuomo rebound - sort of”

Mainly because of its urban areas, the state has a strong Democratic majority, so it's no surprise a recent poll shows the president with a negative overall favorability rating of 26- 66 percent.

Still, despite the negative numbers, Cuomo's overall approval rating rose from July.

While Democrats, Republicans and independent voters all saw large slides in support from the May to July's polls, New York's large population of independents, almost 2.6 million voters in all, remain in majority support of a "Yes" vote.

All told, 77 percent of NY voters rated Trump's job performance as fair or poor, compared to only 22 percent who rated his work as good or excellent, said Siena College Research Institute spokesman Steve Greenberg.

48 percent of New Yorkers said they are prepared to re-elect Cuomo next year.

Republicans overwhelmingly (84-11 percent) support keeping the statues up, while Democrats support removing them (51-42 percent) because - again, as Siena phrased the answer - "while historic, they celebrate people that rebelled against the United States and for some, they represent slavery and segregation". The numbers were 46-46 percent in July.

Yet by a 49-45 percent margin, New Yorkers say groups that include self-identified white nationalists and neo-Nazis should not be able to obtain permits for public rallies like the one that sparked the Charlottesville violence. Thirty-three percent say they will vote no. Voters would select delegates in 2018, with the convention held in 2019.

In the city of Albany, lawn signs have been popping up bearing the message "Say NO to a Constitutional Convention", with many voters just discovering there's going to be a vote on the November ballot. "50 percent of New Yorkers say the state is on the right track, compared to 36 percent who say the state is headed in the wrong direction, up from 46 to 40 last month, but what we also see is that big improvements on this number among downstate voters but a continued little slippage among upstate voters". Fifty-eight percent say they have heard nothing about the upcoming vote, compared to 67 percent in July.
