Governor Andrew Cuomo's approval rating has taken a major hit after he pushed through strict gun laws earlier this month.  

Cuomo's rating fell from 74-percent last month to 59-percent in a new Quinnipiac University poll.  

Pollster Mickey Carroll says Cuomo's support among Republican's in New York plunged from 68% before the gun law to just 44% in the latest poll.

Carroll notes Cuomo's approval numbers are still high at 59%.
