ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) — Almost 60 percent of New Yorkers think Gov. Andrew Cuomo should step down in the wake of the New York Attorney General’s Office’s investigation that found that the governor sexually harassed several women — including more than half of the registered Democrats who were surveyed.

Thirty-two percent of respondents said the Governor should serve the rest of his term, which goes through next year. But 59 percent say that if he doesn’t resign, state legislators should move to impeach him.
