WOODBURY - Gov. Andrew Cuomo got slammed by a new poll regarding his handling of the controversial Common Core curriculum.

In the News 12/Hofstra University poll, nearly 40 percent rated the governor as "poor" on the issue.

A total of 3 ½ percent said "excellent," 17 percent responded "good" and 29 percent rated the governor's performance as "fair."

About 10 percent either didn't know or were undecided on the issue.

Just last month, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a new Common Core Task Force to come up with ways to improve the curriculum, which includes two Long Islanders as part of the panel. The governor said that the task force will pave the way for a complete reboot of Common Core.

Earlier this year, about 200,000 students statewide opted out of the exams.
