ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A new Siena College survey suggests New Yorkers are evenly divided over Donald Trump and what the Republican president-elect will mean for the state.

The poll released Monday found that 49 percent of respondents are optimistic about the next four years, while 48 percent are pessimistic.

The opinions reflect party lines, with 83 percent of Republicans saying Trump will be good for the state, while 64 percent of Democrats say he will not.

The poll also found that the percentage of New Yorkers giving Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo a favorable rating is unchanged at 56 percent, although Cuomo’s job performance is up slightly and more people say they’re prepared to re-elect him in 2018.

The Nov. 27-Dec. 1 telephone survey of 807 registered voters has a 3.8 percentage point margin of error.
