Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s rating has dropped six points following the news of the number of coronavirus-related deaths in nursing homes covered-up by his administration for fear of federal investigation, according to a Morning Consult survey.

The survey showed Cuomo with 57 percent approval.

The figures show a six-point drop from the 63 percent approval taken prior to the cover-up revelations.

A survey was taken on February 2-11 and showed Cuomo’s disapproval at 33 percent.

That number now stands at 38 percent.

“By comparison, perceptions of Cuomo went unchanged in the aftermath of state Attorney General Letitia James’ Jan. 28 report that first revealed the undercounting of nursing home deaths,” Morning Consult reported.

The last week has seen Cuomo's worst numbers since April when he saw surges in popularity as they took active roles in tackling the virus.

Cuomo is also now facing public allegations of political bullying from officials in his own party.

The survey’s margin of error is +/- 2 percent.

Cuomo’s approval ratings also fell from 56-42 percent to 51-47 percent, according to Siena College Research Institute survey released last week.

Both Democrats and Republicans have called for transparency and accountability from the Cuomo administration.

“I strongly believe criminal charges are needed up to and including the highest level of state government. Anyone who is complicit needs to be charged criminally,” New York state Rep. Colin Schmitt (R) said.

Cuomo faced bipartisan scrutiny over his handling of the nursing home crisis.

Critics have focused on Cuomo’s March 25 memo directing nursing homes to accept recovering COVID-19 patients at their facilities.

The order was later rescinded.

Last August, the Justice Department sent out a request for data on nursing home deaths during the pandemic to several state governors, including Cuomo.

Legal experts also warned Cuomo's cover-up of New York's COVID-19-related deaths may rise to the level of a federal criminal offense.

The Democratic governor has found himself at the center of a federal investigation into the scandal.

John B. Daukas, who served as acting U.S. attorney general for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, wrote in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal that DeRosa’s reported admissions weren't "merely negligent, but intentional and perhaps criminal."
