TOMPKINS COUNTY, NY -- A majority of New Yorkers think Governor Cuomo should resign.

That's according to an overnight poll from the Marist Institute For Public Opinion. 

An investigative report released by state Attorney General Letitia James on Tuesday found that Cuomo sexually harassed 11 women, and that his Executive Chamber had fostered an environment that enabled harassment to occur.

Nearly 60 percent of New Yorkers think he should resign, including over half of democrats. A similar number says he should be impeached if he doesn’t resign.

Additionally, 44 percent of those surveyed think Cuomo did something illegal and 29 percent said he did something unethical but not illegal.

Cuomo has been called on to resign by president Biden , neighboring Democratic Governors, as well as Assemblymember Anna Kelles, State Senator Tom O’Mara and  a growing list Local, state, and national officials from both parties.

Cuomo denies ever having taken an action that would constitute sexual harassment.
