Rasmussen Reports released a new national phone and online survey that reveals 73 percent of likely U.S. voters believe New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo should resign.

The survey came after an investigation found Cuomo sexually harassed women in the workplace. Thirteen percent said Cuomo should not resign while 14 percent are not sure.

Just 16 percent of voters believe it is very likely Cuomo will resign. Another 21 percent said it is somewhat likely he’ll resign. A majority — 52 percent — said they do not think it is likely Cuomo will resign.

Should Cuomo refuse to resign, then 62 percent of voters believe the New York state legislature will impeach the governor.

There is bipartisan support for Cuomo’s removal. Seventy-eight percent of Republicans, 72 percent of Democrats and 68 percent of unaffiliated voters said Cuomo should resign.
