Though he continues to face an uphill climb against Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Republican challenger Rob Astorino insisted in a radio interview the race will eventually tilt in his favor.

“Things are going to shift dramatically,” Astorino said in a radio interview on Talk-1300 with Fred Dicker. “There’s no real enthusiasm for Cuomo.”

A Marist College poll released on Monday found Cuomo’s approval rating fell 5 percentage points to 53 percent as controversy over the Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption continues to swirl in Albany.

Despite the drop in approval, most voters say they haven’t heard about the Moreland Commission mess or Astorino himself.

Cuomo continues to lead the Westchester County executive by 31 percentage points. Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins polled at 7 percent.

Astorino shrugged off the seeming lack of traction in a race where he also lags Cuomo in fundraising.

“I don’t put a lot of stock in these polls. I really don’t,” Astorino said. “We’re not basing this campaign on polls because we’re never going to be in the lead.”

Astorino added he’ll eventually put a TV ad on the air, saying the Moreland issue has “changed this in a dramatic fashion.”

“What’s really going to matter is the end game,” he said.

Meanwhile, Cuomo’s Democratic primary opponent Zephyr Teachout also seized on the dip in approval for Cuomo.

“A new poll reported by the Wall Street Journal shows Governor Cuomo has hit an all time low. We can win this thing! Democratic Primary voters are beginning to realize this is about more than a few squashed subpoenas,” the Teachout campaign said. “It’s a glimpse into Governor Cuomo’s New York: a crony capitalist, corporate welfare state, where his campaign contributors are the big winners.”

Cuomo’s re-election campaign is challenging Teachout’s residency status in New York in order to knock her off the September primary ballot.
