Your thoughts on Governor Cuomo:

Answer: No."Diversity among Senate Democrats prevents extreme liberal big spending NYC domination of both the Assembly and State Senate." -Larry P., Great Neck


Answer: Yes."He should start acting more like a Democrat and that means unifying the party, helping the tenants of NY, and lead ethics reform in Albany. The place is corrupt from taking real estate money which is ruining Manhattan." -Mary C, Manhattan


Answer: No."I'm not sure he could unite the Democrats, but more important, I don't think he should try. As long as every elected representative truly represents those their districts, the Governor just has to accept their opinions." -Tom J., Rochester


Answer: No."The Governor should not interfere with the affairs of another branch of government. The separation of power requires that the affairs of each branch is be determined by that branch only. The Governor interfering in the affairs of another branch will be like the Assembly interfering in the affairs of the Governor." -Tony I., Grand Gorge


Answer: No."As a Tory, I rejoice at the dems being divided. Only then is there a check/balance to the state assembly and to the dysfunctional kings andrew and eric." -Frank M., Brooklyn


Answer: Yes."He has let Independent Dems vote with NY GOP for too long." -Laura F., Poughkeepsie
