New York - New Yorkers give high marks to Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Michael Bloomberg for their reaction to Superstorm Sandy, but are far less happy with the Long Island Power Authority.


A Siena College poll released Monday finds 67 percent of the voters surveyed thought Cuomo did an excellent or good job dealing with the storm and its aftermath. Bloomberg was rated excellent or good by 55 percent of those polled.

That compares to 20 percent who thought LIPA (LYE’-puh) was did a good or excellent job. The power provider has been under fire by critics who say it took too long to restore power to thousands of customers.

The statewide telephone poll of 822 registered voters was conducted Nov. 26-29. It has a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.

New Yorkers did poorly, but Cuomo and Bloomberg did well.

How can you poll statewide a situation that was local to NYC. They clearly don't know what's up with Bloomy. They had gas. They aren't still in clean up. What is the city doing to help heat homes in the hard hit areas that are moldy and waterlogged?

Compare to how Dinkins would have handled the hurricane maybe Bloomberg did ok.Compare him to a real Mayor he scores less than poor.

Sorry. Bloomberg did not do anything to help with my area. And when Cuomo wanted to send the National Guard to us, Bloomberg said no. I don't believe that Bloomberg got the percentage that was listed.

Seems like 55-67 percent of New Yorkers were away during the storm.....

Not true at all

I don't think Cuomo wanted to send in the NY Army National Guard at all, because of political considerations. His Father, Gov. Mario Cuomo, also failed to send in the National Guard, during the pogrom in Crown Heights in 1991. As a result, he was defeated in the 1992 election.
