More fun with polls: How popular is Andrew Cuomo nationally?


The answer, according to another new poll released Wednesday, is more popular than George Zimmerman and Edward Snowden and less popular than Pope Francis.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey placed Cuomo in the middle of the pack among 10 politicians and public figures, with 16 percent of respondents saying they have a positive view of the governor and 15 percent having a negative one. A large plurality (45 percent) weren’t familiar with Cuomo or weren’t sure of their opinion of him, while 24 percent were neutral.

The one-point positive/negative differential placed him slightly above former President George W. Bush, who had a 39 percent negative rating and 38 percent positive, and slightly behind Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley. (74 percent didn’t know O’Malley’s name or weren’t sure of their opinion.)

The poll was conducted by Hart Research Associates/Public Opinion Strategies. It’s the first time Cuomo’s name has been included in the national poll.

Also on Wednesday, 6 percent of Democratic and left-leaning adults said they would support Cuomo in a 2016 presidential primary, according to a McClatchy-Marist poll. That’s far behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who pulled in 63 percent.

Here’s the positive/negative opinion breakdown from the NBC News/WSJ survey:
