A new poll shows a plurality of New Yorkers believe Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) mishandled the COVID-19 pandemic in nursing homes, resulting in numerous deaths that were not reported in fear of a federal investigation.
According to the poll from Marist College poll released on Tuesday, 41 percent of the New York residents who took part in the survey believe Cuomo reacted unethically in his handling of nursing homes during the pandemic, but not illegally.Nineteen percent of those surveyed said they believe Cuomo has done something illegal, as compared to 27 percent who believe Cuomo has committed no wrongdoing.
The poll follows multiple reports Cuomo’s top aide, Melissa DeRosa, admitted her team withheld the number of deaths related to COVID-19 in New York’s nursing homes to shield the Cuomo government from federal investigation and political scrutiny.
Cuomo, who is in his third term, received approval from 54 percent of those interviewed for his overall handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, an 18-point drop since last July. Forty-nine percent of New Yorkers approved of Cuomo’s job performance in the poll, a 17-point drop since last July. Twenty-eight percent disapprove of Cuomo’s job performance, a 19-point increase since last summer.
“Cuomo’s approval rating, which was sky high in the summer, has returned to its pre-pandemic level,” Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of The Marist Poll, said
“Should Cuomo decide to seek a fourth term, these results suggest it will be a challenge,” Miringoff added. “That said, his current numbers are comparable to what they were when he faced the voters last time.”
Overall, 50 percent of New Yorkers surveyed in the poll have a favorable opinion of Cuomo, while 46 percent do not.
A total of 953 New York residents took part in the poll outlined above from February 15 to 17. The poll has a 3.8 +/- margin of error.

But hugging and kissing loved ones after months of separation is banned under strictly controlled conditions.5Nicky Clough visits her mum Pam Harrison at Alexander House Care Home for the first time in London, March 8 2021Credit: Reuters What is the guidance for visiting care homes?
Loved ones can now visit care home residents in person, as part of the first phase of lockdown easing in England - however there are several rules.
From March 8, 2021, each care home resident in England will be able to name and receive one visitor.
They can make repeated visits under "carefully designed conditions to keep residents, staff and visitors safe", says the government.
That person will be required to take a Covid test before dropping in, wear personal protective equipment (PPE) during the stay and avoid close contact beyond holding hands.
"There will be discretion for care homes to allow more than one named visitor in exceptional circumstances," the government adds.
Residents with the highest care needs will also be able to nominate an essential care giver.5It's been a tough time for care home residents and their families and friendsCredit: Getty - Contributor
Plus, care homes can continue to offer visits to other friends or family members with arrangements such as outdoor visiting, substantial screens, visiting pods, or behind windows.
- Vaccination is not mandatory and will not be a condition of visiting loved ones in care homes.
- Visits will be suspended during local outbreaks in individual homes.
- Visits by essential care givers and exceptional circumstances including end of life should "always be enabled", says the government.
- Care homes can decide how often and for how long visitors can be on the premises.
- Visits should take place in a well-ventilated room, for example with windows and doors open where it is safe to do so.
Visitors and residents are advised to keep physical contact to a minimum, says the government, to prevent the spread of Covid.
The nominated visitor and resident are allowed to hold hands.
However there should not be close physical contact such as hugging or kissing.
Visitors "should bear in mind that any contact increases the risk of coronavirus transmission", says official advice.You can now hold hands with loved ones in care homes in England PPE
Although hand-holding is allowed, visitors must wear PPE in care homes to protect residents.COVID TESTING
Visitors to care homes need to take a rapid lateral flow test and test negative before every visit.
If the visitor tests positive they must immediately leave the premises to go home and self-isolate, avoiding public transport.
Care home managers have discretion to set up their own testing areas.
The government has allowed these visits to start as part of its careful plan to normality in the UK after the third lockdown.
Health and Care Secretary Matt Hancock said: “The NHS vaccination programme is in full swing and more than 21million of the most at-risk people have already received their first dose.
“This includes more than 90 per cent of those aged 65 and over and almost nine in ten people who are clinically extremely vulnerable."5Melanie Grove sees her mother Barbara Baxter, 89, at Highcliffe Rest Home in Chorley, Lancs, on March 8, 2021Credit: Mercury Press LATEST ON CORONAVIRUSLive BlogCLASS ACTSchools could CLOSE again and kids return to home learning, union boss warnsLive BlogVIRUS UPDATE'2 YEARS before world recovers from covid horrors & global economy stabilises'TAKING CARE Grandchildren able to hold hands with grandparents in care homes from todayJAB PROBECovid vaccines had NO link with deaths of eight people, investigation revealsPASSING THE TESTPrem announce just two positive coronavirus cases for fourth week runningTESTING TIMESWhat is a Covid lateral flow test, how do I use one and are results accurate?
