GUN BILL KNOCKS GOP SUPPORT FOR NEW YORK’S CUOMO,QUINNIPIAC UNIVERSITY POLL FINDS;MOST REPUBLICANS SAY GUN BILL WENT TOO FAR 
Republican disapproval of New York’s tough new gun-control law could be taking a toll on Gov.Andrew Cuomo, whose all-time high 74 – 13 percent job approval rating last month drops to astill-solid 59 – 28 percent in a Quinnipiac University poll released today.Voters in non-gun homes approve of the governor 68 – 19 percent. Voters in householdswith a gun disapprove 50 – 40 percent.Republican approval of the governor, 68 – 18 percent in a survey by the independentQuinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University on December 12, just two days before the Newtownmassacre, is a split 44 – 43 percent today.Democratic support, 82 – 9 percent in December, is 74 – 14 percent today. Approval byindependent voters drops from 70 – 12 percent to 54 – 32 percent.Women approve of Gov. Cuomo 64 – 23 percent, down from 73 – 12 percent. Menapprove 54 – 33 percent, down from 74 – 14 percent.The gun-control package signed by Gov. Cuomo this month goes “too far’ in restrictinggun owners’ rights, 34 percent of all voters, including 59 percent of Republicans, say. The gun-control measure does not go far enough in protecting public safety, 30 percent of all voters,including 17 percent of Republicans, say. The measure is “about right,” 30 percent of all voters,including 20 percent of Republicans, say.“With approval ratings that consistently topped 70 percent, New York Gov. AndrewCuomo had the political capital to spend when he set out to pass the toughest gun control laws inthe nation,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “It is possible that the gun law cost him some of that political capital, but a 2-1 job approval rating stillmakes him the envy of most governors.”

“Is Gov. Cuomo’s honeymoon with Republicans over, or is this just a spat that can be patched up in the months ahead?’ Carroll asked. “Cuomo lost some Republican support after the2011 same-sex marriage bill, but he got it back.”By a 4-1 margin, New York State voters support the new requirement that mental health professionals report patients whom they believe are a threat to themselves or others so police canconfiscate any weapons the patient owns:
76 percent support the measure;
19 percent are opposed.Support is higher among Democrats, 83 – 12 percent, than among Republicans, 71 – 24 percent. Independent voter support the mental health measure 71 – 23 percent.Support among voters in gun households is 72 – 23 percent.Voters reject 56 – 32 percent the argument that fewer mentally ill people will seek help because of this measure.“Perhaps the most controversial measure in New York State’s new package of gun laws,the mental health provision wins strong support and seems to put Democrats and Republicans inan interesting role reversal on law and order vs. civil rights,” Carroll said.Stricter gun laws will do more to reduce gun violence in schools than armed guards, NewYork State voters say 48 – 40 percent.By a 46 – 22 percent margin, voters have an unfavorable opinion of the leadership of the National Rifle Assn.Job approval ratings are down slightly for other leaders:
Voters approve 57 – 39 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing, down from62 – 35 percent December 12;
Sen. Charles Schumer gets a 60 – 30 percent job score, down from 63 – 23 percent;
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has a 57 – 21 percent score, down from 61 – 18 percent, her highest ever.From January 23 – 28, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,127 New York State voters witha margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts publicopinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginiaand the nation as a public service and for research.
