She’s only been in office for about 7 weeks but so far, so good for New York Governor Kathy Hochul. But what if she runs in 2022? Could Andrew Cuomo be the comeback kid? Plus, our special guest is AEI’s Daniel Cox to discuss his fascinating new report on K-12 education in the era of COVID and the culture wars.
Our latest poll of New Yorkers focuses on attitudes about new Governor Kathy Hochul who took office after Andrew Cuomo resigned. We’re discussing her approval rating, her leadership scores, and how she stacks up in a hypothetical Democratic primary next year. We also look at how Cuomo is faring after his self-inflicted fall from grace. Are voters even open to the idea of a comeback?
In the second segment, we’re joined by Daniel Cox from the American Enterprise Institute to discuss his new report on American public schools in the age of pandemic mandates and new culture war battles. His data highlights what Americans think should be taught and their fears when it comes to COVID-19 spreading in schools. Cox breaks it all down with the team and helps explain why these numbers matter.
Finally, this week’s fun fact is all about vegetarians. Grab a grain bowl and join us!

About Poll Hub
Each week, Poll Hub goes behind the science to explain how polling works, what polls really show, and what the numbers really mean. Poll Hub is produced by the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, home of America’s leading independent college public opinion poll, the Marist Poll.
Lee Miringoff (Director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion), Barbara Carvalho (Director of the Marist Poll), and Jay DeDapper (Director of Innovation at the Marist Poll) dig deep to give you a look at the inner workings of polls and what they tell us about our world, our country, and ourselves.
