The latest survey from Siena finds voters agree by a 45-28 percent margin with the US Supreme Court decision that upheld the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (AKA ‘Obamacare’), and support its full implementation, 53-37.

This is slightly higher than the national average. A recent Q poll found voters agree 48-45 with the decision, and the appeal/implementation split is 43-49.

The Siena poll findings aren’t terribly surprisingly, considering the considerable Democratic enrollment edge statewide.

Three-quarters of Democrats favor implementation, Siena discovered, and three-quarters of Republicans support repeal.

On the political front, Gov. Andrew Cuomo continues to be enormously popular. He’s still got a three-to-one favorability rating, and voters have given him virtually the same grade – a solid B (46 percent) on the A to F scale – for his work on the 2012 legislative session as they gave him for the 2011 session.

The governor’s favorability rating is 69-22, (little changed from 70-24 last month). His job approval is at 58-41 (down a hair from 60-40 last month).

The unfavorables slightly outweigh the favorables for both houses of the state Legislature, which rank in the 40 percent range with New Yorkers, on average.

But state lawmakers do a heck of a lot better than members of Congress (and remember: they’re all up for re-election this year in newly-drawn districts), whose august body has a 27-67 percent favorability rating.

As for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, her 49-24 percent favorability rating is about the same as the 50-24 percent she received in June.

By a margin of 55-28 percent voters say they are prepared to re-elect her rather than support “someone else” (little changed from 54-29 percent in June).

Gillibrand’s Republican opponent, Wendy Long, has a 13-11 approval rating, and that wasn’t improved much by her June 26 primary win, since it was at 9 percent last month.

Gillibrand leads Long quite comfortably: 62-25.
