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.
