Uh, Cuomo is the normal leftist. "Marxists" in their suburban bedrooms or basements might act upset but Cuomo is well liked by all New Yorkers for doing a good job running the state.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

What has Cuomo done that's so conservative? The only thing I've heard in regards to specifics is that he was open to legalizing fracking (which is most certainly not something I'd favor, but I doubt it's the only thing fueling this.)
He made some pension cuts that are no big deal. New York can't be taxed any more than it is so Cuomo is doing the right thing. Malloy wont raise taxes enough. Too many people have this narrow ideological view and fail to put things in perspective. Considering he only has an 11% disapproval rating among actual New York Democrats, it is hard to take the Cuomo haters on this forum seriously.

He is definitely a moderate hero for talking tough on redistricting, and then signing the usual horrible Republican gerrymander of the state Senate into law.
He was forced to cave by his own party. It is tough to get the better end of the powers that be in New York.

He could have vetoed it. I imagine that Senate Democrats would have blocked a veto override.
You must not know much about New York politics. The Democrats dont care about the State Senate.
Yes, theoretically they "could" have blocked a veto override but it wouldn't be in their interest, just like a vetowasnt in Cuomo's interest.

Senate Democrats don't really care. Their caucus is a trainwreck anyway.

So he's most popular in the suburbs? That's interesting.

72-15 and 76-12 is basically semantics, but his popularity in the suburbs isn't exactly that surprising.  The property tax cap was quite popular here, especially considering the average property taxes in the core NYC suburban counties are $10-12,000.  Also the suburbs are socially liberal, most of the same sex marriage polls showed the support in the suburbs slightly higher than NYC proper.

People like NY Jew in the city, lots of conservative Orthodox Jews. Also minorities that aren't very socially liberal and Staten Island of course.

NY Jew is in denial that most Jews are Democrats.

The first four words in that sentence would suffice. Wink
