(CNN) - A little more than a month after Superstorm Sandy wrought major destruction in the Empire State, New York voters are giving high marks to some of their elected leaders for the way they handled the storm's aftermath.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg all received favorable ratings in a new Siena College Poll released Monday.

On October 29, the then-Category 1 hurricane slammed into the U.S. East Coast, demolishing parts of New Jersey and New York City. More than 40 people were confirmed dead in New York alone.
State and federal officials played a visible roll through traditional and social media. Cuomo, the Democratic governor elected in 2010, and Bloomberg both kept a running Twitter feed and held frequent press conferences advising residents how to evacuate, deal with power outages, and handle other urgent needs.
Sixty-seven percent of voters said Cuomo, who's been noted as a potential presidential candidate in 2016, has done an "excellent or good job" in the wake of the storm, while 22% said he's done a "fair job" and seven percent said he's done a "poor job."
Bloomberg's marks weren't quite as high. Fifty-five percent of voters said the independent mayor, now in his third term, had done an "excellent or good" job, while 24% said he did a "fair" job and 14% said he did a "poor" job.
For his part, Obama visited New Jersey less than a week before Election Day, then went back to visit Staten Island a couple of weeks later. Sixty-one percent of voters said the president did an "excellent or good" job, 20% said he did a "fair" job and 17% said he did a "poor" job.
Also of note, 63% of voters consider the major storms over the last two years, including Hurricane Irene–which weakened to a tropical storm shortly before hitting New York City–are related to "global climate change, rather than isolated weather events," according to Siena pollster Steven Greenberg.
"There may be a debate about what has caused the global climate change, but for most New Yorkers there is no debate that it is occurring," Greenberg said in a release with the poll.
The survey also found that more than half of New Yorkers contributed to relief efforts and nearly one-third of those living "downstate" volunteered their time.
Siena interviewed 822 registered voters in the state of New York from November 26 through November 29. The poll's sampling error is plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
