Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been echoing some of the country’s Republican governors as he wrestled with the state’s budget woes, cutting spending, not instituting new taxes, and seeking concessions from unions. That has tea party activists in New York backing the Democratic governor in a new poll, NY1 News reported Wednesday.

Andrew Cuomo, New York, governorCuomo's handling of the New York state budget gets a 66 percent approval rating from the state's tea party activists, more than any other group.

"All things being equal, you would say, 'How could the tea party be supporting or endorsing what a Democratic governor, whose last name is Cuomo, is doing?' And yet that is exactly what we’re seeing," says Lee Miringoff of Marist College.

Fewer Democrats – 58 percent – back Cuomo’s budget actions. Women turn out to be his toughest crowd, with just 44 percent approval.

Tea party supporters also generally think the budget will be good for the state.

"The budget has no new taxes, there are cuts in spending. These are keeping with what the tea party philosophy is all about," Miringoff said. 


Among tea party supporters, 64 percent think the budget is good for the state. Even more suburban registered voters — 67 percent — think the state will benefit from the budget.
