ALBANY -- Another poll says New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's favorability and job performance ratings have hit the lowest point of his tenure as governor.

Tuesday's Siena College survey put the Democratic governor's favorability rating at 53 percent, down from 63 percent in June 2014. His job performance rating is 41 percent, down from 49 percent in June of last year.

The findings are similar to those in a Marist College poll earlier this month.

Ninety percent of respondents in the Siena poll said Albany corruption remains a "serious problem" following the arrest of two top lawmakers this year. But those surveyed said education and jobs and the economy should be higher priorities for lawmakers.

The telephone poll of 695 registered voters last Tuesday through Thursday has a 3.7 percentage point margin of error.
