Half of New York voters believe the state should delay implementation of Common Core.

That's according to a new Siena Research Institute poll.

Fifty percent of people polled support a two-year moratorium on the more-stringent education standards.

That's compared to 38 percent who said they should "continue to be implemented as quickly as possible."

The poll also takes a look at Governor Andrew Cuomo’s favorability rating.

It fell to 60 percent from 66 percent last month.
