New York governor Kathy Hochul is popular with likely voters, her job approval stands at 55% approve/33% disapprove according to a new Zogby Analytics poll.
Hochul, who took over when Andrew Cuomo resigned last year, also holds a strong lead over the former governor in the event he were to attempt a comeback bid in the Democratic primary. Zogby polled such a match-up as 41% for Hochul and only 20% for Cuomo.
