    The latest Emerson College/WPIX-TV/NewsNation poll of New York voters finds Governor Andrew Cuomo in a precarious position, with his job approval underwater at 38% approval/48% disapproval.

    A plurality (45%) of voters feel Governor Cuomo should resign over his handling of the pandemic in New York nursing homes. Thirty-six percent (36%) stated they do not think the Governor should resign, and 18% were unsure or held no opinion on the matter.

    ====================================================


    It's too bad the MSM was not reporting on his Nursing Home Scandal back in May 2020 when we all knew about it.

    Fact:

    Cuomo ordered CV-19 contagious people into Nursing Homes where the most vulnerable lived. Over 15,000 Nursing home patients died. They had the ability to put them in the Javits Center which the Trump Administration had converted to a full hospital and staffed with Federally funded doctors.

    Opinion:

    Why would Cuomo not use the Javits Center? Because it would have made President Trump look good in the pandemic.

    Why didn't the MSM report on it? Because it would have made Cuomo look like the piece of crap he really is and again, Trump would have looked good. The MSM was far too busy making Cuomo the Angel of CV-19 while they were demonizing President Trump.

    Fact:

    Cuomo had the order purged from the NY State government site.

    Fact:

    Cuomo gave the Nursing Home executives immunity.

    Fact:

    One of Cuomo's biggest donors is the Nursing Homes.

    Fact:


    Cuomo hid the real numbers from the Federal Government hurting their ability to react and plan in regards to the pandemic

    Fact:


    Cuomo lied and lied and lied while the MSM sand his praises.

    Opinion:


    It's not just Cuomo that needs to pay the piper, but the U.S. MSM for not doing their job the whole way through, unless their job is propaganda.

    I would agree.

    The Establishment ignored his deadly and outrageous actions, until they had Trump out of office. Cuomo is now a liability they can no longer hide with his Nursing Home scandal coming to light, so it's time to go. The Establishment want him gone for his Sexual Harassment. They don't want it exposed that the Establishment "news media" ignored his CV-19 failures and the deadly consequences. In fact, they didn't just ignore him while he was killing thousands needlessly. They praised him, gave him awards, and heralded him as the anti-Trump.

    It's not like these woman just magically decided to all get this moving at the same time. They could have spoke out long before, but the time was not right.

    Andrew 'Hands' Cuomo is due to speak for the first time since February soon. Let's see what he has to say.

    Cuomo sex scandal is fake and meant to cover for the other governors involved in the nursing home deaths

    Yeah? And, So what?

    I (personally) have been calling for Cuomo's resignation for (at least) a week.

    The only "surprise" in that poll is that Cuomo still retains so much support.

    His politcal career is over, most certainly by the end of his term.

    IF the NY State Legislature fails to impeach, and Cuomo won't resign voluntarily, at a bare minimum Cuomo should immediately announce his intention not to seek another term in 2022 (to allow the other 2022 Democratic Hopefuls a chance to raise money and get their campaigns started).

    Personally, I would favor a Resignation (since it would be a great unintended consequence of the harassment allegations, for NY to get their 1st Ever Female Governor).

    Yet another political coup of an elected leader orchestrated by our corrupt bipartisan ruling political class.

    Elections don't really matter when the political elites can rig or nullify them.

    Cuomo represents more Orwellian manipulation by the Establishment. They propped him up when it suited their needs and now they burn him down ignoring his real crimes to cover their tracks. CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, etc... will barely touch the Nursing Home Scandal which dwarfs his Sexual Harassment Scandal, because they were complicit in the Nursing Homes as everyone on the Right knew how bad it was back in May 2020, but the Establishment willfully ignored it.

    We will see if the nation cleans up its act for 2022 and 2024. If we still have votes without verification and ID's... I think the national will fall apart. When "We the People" don't feel like the system is legitimate in huge numbers, the system fails and the people take other actions like not paying taxes in mass.

    He looks like he's sitting on a cucumber. It also seems like he's having issues stringing a thought together.

    He knows he is in deep trouble.

    IMO, elections matter and Cuomo, unless indicted and convicted of a crime, should remain in office until his term is over.
    Our political elites have become too fond of rigging the political system for their own advantage.

    Impeachment might be the proverbial bridge too far, maybe pressuring for a resignation would be better.

    Impeachment should be the standard for this.

    That and criminal charges for his murder.

    He seems somewhat psychopathic, with a far higher dead count that any serial killer.

    Successful professional politicians may have to be a bit psychopathic.
    It's probably in their DNA.

    “During his first term, in the mid-1980s, Cuomo was famous for
    tracking down reporters in restaurants, at the homes of
    relatives, or at their Albany apartments in the wee hour
    morning. The reporter, often new on the beat, would fumble
    for the phone. On the other end Cuomo would be barking, You
    cut my testicle off,' threatening to call his editor or get
    him fired. "These conversations, which have become famous,
    are not fully understood by people who weren't part of them,"
    says Jeffrey Schmalz, the New York Times Albany bureau chief
    in the mid-1980s. We aren't talking about him calling up and
    shouting. We're talking about an eerie, scary tone, which
    would send a chill up your spine. He sounded like a man not
    in control of his temper, paranoid, beside himself
    .””
