ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A new poll finds Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the Democrat-controlled state Legislature are viewed favorably by a majority of registered New York voters, but salary raises state leaders and lawmakers recently received are not.

The Siena College survey released Monday shows Cuomo with a 51-43 percent favorability rating. That compares to a negative 45-49 percent rating in early November, when the Democrat won a third term.

The Assembly has a 48-32 percent favorability rating, while the Senate has as 49-38 percent favorability rating. Both chambers had negative ratings in a June Siena poll.

Eighty percent of those surveyed said they disapproved of the raises authorized last year by a state pay commission.

The Jan. 6-10 telephone survey of 805 registered voters had a margin of error of 4.1 percentage points.
