A new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's numbers are dropping, and his constituents do not believe he should try for a shot at the White House.

The Democratic governor's popularity rating remains positive, at 46-38 percent, but the approval ratings are down from a 52-31 percent job approval rating in March. Further, he marked a negative rating of 37-48 percent among upstate voters, and the lowest rating since his all-time lowest score of 43-43 percent in September 2015.

"Gov. Andrew Cuomo is hurting in Albany and New Yorkers say he should 'fuhgeddabout' Washington," Maurice Carroll, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll commented.

"This might change — it almost certainly will — when the 2020 presidential year comes along. But for now his New York neighbors don't think Gov. Cuomo would be a good president and they don't want him to try for the job."

Cuomo himself, meanwhile, insisted Monday that he is not seeking a presidential race, Politico reports. 

"You know, that's what they do in politics. They speculate," Cuomo told reporters after a speech in Schenectady. "I'm running for re-election as governor of the state of New York, and that's what I'm focused on and that's what I'm doing and that's what I wake up thinking about. That's my focus."

According to the poll:

  • New Yorkers, 52-33 percent, down from 60-23 in March.
  • Suburban voters, 50-29 percent, down from 54 – 31 percent in March.
  • Upstate: 37-48 percent; down from 43-41 percent in March.
  • Democrats: Approve by 64 – 19 percent.
  • Republicans: Disapprove by 64-26 percent.
  • Independents: Disapprove by 44-40 percent.

New York state voters, meanwhile, disapprove by 63-29 percent of the job President Donald Trump is doing, compared to a 67-29 percent disapproval March 29.

On a presidential race:

  • 54-40 percent, Cuomo should be a national leader challenging the policies of the Trump administration.
  • 55-35 percent: Cuomo should not run for president.
  • Democrats: 50 percent favor a presidential race.
  • Republicans: 74 percent against a presidential run.
  • Independents: 59 percent against.
  • Would not make a good president: Overall, 56-34 percent.

The telephone poll of 1,137 New York voters was conducted from July 5-10 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
