New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has gotten praise from some in the media — including his brother on CNN — for his response to the coronavirus outbreak in his state. However, others, such as Fox News’ Janice Dean, have slammed the governor’s disastrous nursing home policy which contributed to thousands of deaths (though the Cuomo administration investigated themselves and found the policy wasn’t a “significant factor” in the deaths).
Cuomo will no doubt be touting a new poll about his job performance during the pandemic:
Cuomo's job approval rating hits all-time high of 60% in new Marist poll. 72% approve of his handling of the coronavirus.https://t.co/J7yskITLuh

Believe it or not, that poll result isn’t flying with everybody:
Not buying it.

I don’t believe this for one second

Is that massive poll skepticism we’re sensing? Yes it is.
I would bet they didn’t poll @JaniceDean ‘s family!

Truly astonishing. 32,343 deaths in New York State. 1,663 deaths per million population, Second-highest in country, after New Jersey. (Comparison: California 174; Florida 187; Texas 105.) Documented mismanagement; awful results. https://t.co/HuBVDGbAJU

But yeah, great job, governor! *Eye roll*
That thing where you can be objectively incompetent and kill thousands but, the daily media fellating keeps your approval ratings sky high. https://t.co/A6pN3GdbDN

Cynical reminder that if you say something loudly enough and often enough—and, I guess, if your politics etc are amenable enough to sections of the media—that thing can magically become true https://t.co/EvtGqII25I

New Yorkers must have really hated their old people.

Just more proof these polls are complete BS! https://t.co/au2mR6AAHz

Well at least 6,000 seniors weren't available to be polled so this is entirely possible given the change in demographics and New York's general insanity. https://t.co/GBN0uF20OC

He's getting a lot of goodwill from all of the people collecting early inheritances.

Literally put in policy that led to excessive death in nursing homes and people give him 👍… this is why we can’t have nice things
