The past couple of weeks have been tense once between the two Democrats and there is no sign of improvement. De Blasio on Thursday, July 9, did not back down in his ongoing feud with Cuomo, doubling down on his criticisms of Albany, rebuffing a call for a "pasta summit" to clear the air and vowing he would continue to call out further obstructions from his friend-turned-foe.

ALBANY, NY (NEWS 10) – A new Siena poll shows that Governor Cuomo’s job rating has slipped below 50 percent for the first time since he was elected.

His new rating is 49.44 percent, down from the 53.44 he had in May.

More than 60 percent of respondents gave Cuomo a rating of fair to poor.

Statewide, Gov. Cuomo is seen as more effective and trustworthy than New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio.

Additionally, the poll found that nearly 70 percent of voters would support a Constitutional Convention, the first in the state in 50 years.

Voters also said that due to current corruption, they are less likely to re-elect their legislators next year.
