Governor Andrew Cuomo's universal pre-K funding plan is getting more support in a statewide poll than Mayor de Blasio's.

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows 47 percent of voters across the state prefer Cuomo's plan to use existing state funds.

Thirty-seven percent back de Blasio's plan to raise taxes on wealthy New Yorkers.

Cuomo's proposal is also getting more support in the five boroughs.

Forty-nine percent of city voters back his plan, compared with 40 percent who support de Blasio.

The survey of 1,488 state voters was conducted from February 6th to the 10th.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.

In response, a spokesperson for the mayor said, "Today's poll shows that New Yorkers from across the political spectrum want universal pre-K and a real plan to provide it. And make no mistake: New York City's proposal is the only plan on the table that would provide sufficient and sustainable funding needed to make high-quality early education truly universal."
