Screen Shot 2013-02-02 at 9.47.22 AMNew York Governor Andrew Cuomo experienced a sharp drop in approval after pushing through tough new gun laws, according to a poll conducted by Quinnipiac University.

Cuomo, who last month had an all-time high job approval of 74 percent, saw that number drop to 59 percent.

The Quinnipiac poll also shows:

  • Voters in non-gun homes approve of the governor 68%-19%.
  • Voters in households with a gun disapprove 50%-40%.

Thirty-four percent of all voters say the gun-control package signed by Gov. Cuomo this month goes “too far” in restricting gun owners’ rights while 30 percent say it does not go far enough in protecting public safety.

    Cuomo the Homo signed more than an unconstitutional bill into law; he also signed his political career’s death warrant. He’ll never be re-elected.
