The governor's favorability rating is the highest since January 2013.

ALBANY — An overwhelming majority of New Yorkers approved of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a Siena College poll released Monday.

A total of 87% of New Yorkers approved of Cuomo's response to COVID-19, the poll found. That's compared to just 11% who disapproved.

The Democratic governor's support was well above any other New York or federal leader, and more New Yorkers disapproved of the job President Donald Trump is doing than approved.

“In the midst of this global pandemic, New Yorkers approve of Gov. Cuomo’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic with near universal support," Steven Greenberg, the Siena poll spokesman, said in a statement.

Cuomo's favorability rating also spiked in the last month, reaching 71% — his highest rating since January 2013 — in the March 30 poll, compared to just 44% one month ago, the poll found.

That's a difference of 27 percentage points.

A majority of New Yorkers said they are "very concerned" about COVID-19, and 26% live in a household where someone has been laid off.

What else did the Siena poll find?

COVID-19 is overwhelmingly on the minds of New Yorkers.

The number of confirmed positive cases in the state continues to climb, reaching nearly 60,000 as of Sunday afternoon, with 965 confirmed deaths.

And 79% of New Yorkers said they are either very or somewhat concerned about contracting the virus themselves, the poll found.

Still, an equal margin of voters believe the state is doing everything it can do combat the virus, and 76% said they approve of their local health department's handling of the pandemic.

“Similarly, by a 79-18% margin — including at least 74% from every region and party — voters say New York State government is doing everything it can to protect the health of New Yorkers,” Greenberg said.

New York has taken drastic steps to slow the spread of the virus, closing schools until at least April 15 and ordering non-essential businesses to require their workforce's to work from home of close their doors indefinitely.

A stark contrast between Trump and Cuomo in poll

New Yorkers' approval of Cuomo was a stark contrast of how they viewed the federal government's response.

A total of 56% said they disapproved of Trump's handling of the pandemic, while the president's unfarvorability rating ticked up two percentage points since February to 61% in the heavily blue state.

And the response by Vice President Mike Pence, who's heading the federal government's response to the virus, was also viewed negatively by a margin of 47%-41%, the poll found.

But Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country's foremost expert on infectious diseases, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention were viewed favorably by 74% and 73%, respectively.

The Siena poll was conducted March 22-26 to 566 registered voters. It had a margin of error of 4.5 percentage points. A total of 48% of those interviewed were registered Democrats and 22% were Republicans, while 26% were independents.
