Listen to this story
Governor Andrew Cuomo's approval rating is the lowest it's been since he's been governor, according to a new Siena College poll.

The Siena College poll finds only 44% of voters like the job that Andrew Cuomo is doing as governor. 56% say he's doing a fair or poor job. Siena's Steve Greenberg says it's the first time the governor's approval rating has dipped below 50%.

"His job performance, how voters think Andrew Cuomo is doing as governor, took a big hit this month,” Greenberg said. 
Cuomo doesn’t have to be too worried though about his 2014 re-election race. When matched up against three potential Republican opponents, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino and state GOP Chair Ed Cox, nearly two-thirds of the potential voters back Cuomo.
The governor also has nearly $30 million in his campaign war chest, more than any other governor in the country. No potential opponent so far has any significant amount of money for a race.
Greenberg says the funds will make it easy for Cuomo to get his message out over the next year.
“That’s a lot of money to spend telling your story,” Greenberg said.
