Cuomo's inability to win voters over on the issue - and only a slight 2-point lead on "advancing progressive issues" - are the only two areas where the poll shows Cuomo looking vulnerable.

Cynthia Nixon's bid to deny Gov.

Cuomo followed up by saying he reached out to Democratic officials to "make sure it doesn't happen again", and he repeated those comments again on Monday.
