A new poll shows there are plenty of Empire State residents who have a favorable opinion of Governor Hochul.
According to the Siena College survey, 42 % of people polled say they have positive view of the governor compared to 17 % who don't. However, 41 % said they don't know enough about Hochul yet to form an opinion of her. Hochul took office last month following the resignation of ex-Governor Andrew Cuomo in the aftermath of sexual harassment allegations made against him. Previously, Hochul had served as the Lieutenant Governor.
