Liked It 35%

Didn't Like It 65%




Your thoughts on the State of the State address:

Answer: Liked it."Yes, yes, very good, very progressive, very supportive of our state against a clearly counterproductive U.S. Congress. Yet, how many of those things will he actually support in practical ways, in the end? Even more, how many can actually be enacted? We have severe challenges in this state. Luckily, we also have a huge number of hard-working, clever people. I guess I just have to hope for the best." -Kurt H., Schenectady


Answer: Liked it."It is the responsibility of the Governor to portray a 'we can' message, in very difficult times, because of Washington, for the State of NY. It's encouraging to hear him lay out a 'can do' agenda." -Paul B., Clifton Park


Answer: Liked it."I'm a lifelong Democrat but did not vote for Cuomo because of his stand on education. I believe he is preparing to run for President and I like that he is going more to the left. Also happy that he is taking on Trump." -Wendy Waczek, Ossining


Answer: Liked it."I think it was geared nationally, and he is considering a run for president in 2020. He is qualified for the office and I'm in favor of it." -Mary C., Manhattan


Answer: Didn't Like It."Although I liked what he said, I was very disappointed he didn't directly & specifically address NY state issues, actions & plans. As a NY resident, the Governor needs to address & talk about what he did & his actions & plans for improving NYS affairs first, before throwing rocks at Federal Government. He needs to be real about his job in NY first!" -Gary S., East Patchogue


Answer: Didn't Like It."New York's financial problems are caused by rampant corruption and policies from Albany, not Washington.The Governor should address this." -Warren Z., New York City


Answer: Didn't Like It."Mr. Cuomo should have been charged for commercial time, as this was clearly a bid for the next presidential election. How blind would you have to miss this megalomaniacs antics? Poor NY!" -Joanne C., Patterson


Answer: Didn't Like It."How dare he use public pension funds for political social engineering. Outrageous abuse of fiduciary responsibility. The pension fund is part of the workers' wages, not a democrat piggy bank, I see a class action suit in his future." -Joe P., Buffalo


Answer: Didn't Like It."Speach is just a precursor for a run for president. He's building a very progressive agenda to lure progressives to vote for him for president in 2020. This agenda is not good for NY." -Tania B., Guilford


Answer: Didn't Like It."Andrew Cuomo is a big spending big taxing Governor." -Gary P., Waverly


Answer: Didn't Like It."Despite his lip service to voting rights and his "democracy agenda," he has failed to recognize the rights of the citizens of State Senate District 37, which is now unrepresented because George Latimer has been installed in Westchester County, by scheduling a special election; and failed to insist on dissolving the IDC, which betrays the voters. His speech says progressive but his actions say otherwise." -Jenny G., Larchmont


Answer: Didn't Like It."Said nothing, Time to move to Florida!" -Ernie, Hastings-on-Hudson


Answer: Didn't Like It."He never explained what was the funding source for his $100 billion worth of transportation projects" -Larry P., Great Neck


Answer: Didn't Like It."He grandstands and doesn't think through his ideas. Way to ruin a state! Cut your staff, overreacting programs, FOIL wall & work for the people instead, and maybe we'll support you! Care for our special needs citizens and what really matters! Listen and act on Harvey Weisenberg's positions!" -John D., Queensbury


Answer: Didn't Like It."Same song, different day. Just like papa Cuomo." -Anthony, Eastchester


Answer: Didn't Like It."The Governor is more interested in talking about issues that will get him on the national stage than dealing with the state's massive deficit." -Daniel A., Montgomery


Answer: Didn't Like It."His arms should be longer so it would be easier to keep patting himself on the back because he thinks he's the smartest man in the state. Just ask him." -Paul L., Johnstown
