commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Daniel…..New York Governor & Senate: Cuomo clobbers Lazio & Levy; Lazio leads Levy BIG; Gillibrand still trails Pataki but beats Blakeman; Interestingly Dan Senor wasn’t polled?………….

Hello Dog!

“The Dog” teased this Poll this morning so I’ll just have an more in depth look at the Numbers. A new Statewide Survey in the Empire State shows State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) clobbering his Republican Opposition. What’s more surprising is that former U. S. Rep. Rick Lazio (R-NY) starts out the Primary Election Campaign with a HUGE Advantage over Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy (R-NY) who announced his Campaign on Friday. I don’t buy these Numbers at all. I think Levy will beat Lazio in the end.

In the Senate Special Election Incumbent Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) still trails former New York Governor George Pataki (R-NY) by 6 Points but beats her Main Republican Rival Bruce Blakeman (R-NY) by 24 Points. Most surprisingly for me is that New York’s Local Pollster left out Daniel “Dan” Senor (R-NY).

Analysis:

Very surprising they left out Senor.

Daniel G.

Yea Daniel I agree…He hasn’t declared…… but he’s running….Why was he left out?

Keep an eye on Levy….he’s known to be a little bit of a ‘all over the place guy’….and he may not do as well as everyone thinks outside of his native Suffolk County….the fact remains this is Cuomo’s to lose…and with numbers like his (they will go down a bit ) he looks very much like a winner…..

That would be a father son team…like the ….He, he, he Bush’s……….

Steve Levy’s switch in parties does not effect Andrew Cuomo’s ratings…….

The first poll out after Levy moves over to the GOP to run for New York State Governor still finds Andrew Cuomo miles….and miles ahead of all comers….

This from PolitcalWire….

Cuomo Continues to Dominate

A new Siena Poll in New York finds Andrew Cuomo (D) maintains a nearly 40-point lead over Rick Lazio (R), 59% to 21%, and an even larger lead over Steve Levy (R), 63% to 16%.

Said pollster Steven Greenberg: “New York politics changes faster than the weather in Albany in March. Just two months ago, it looked like the Democrats were headed to a potentially divisive primary and that Republicans were rallying around presumptive nominee Lazio. Today it looks like Democrats are planning a coronation at their convention.”

I’m sure Daniel will have more on this…..

Update….Lazio also leads Levy with Republicans….hum?

White House asks NY State Governor Paterson not to run………..

New York State Governor Paterson has been quietly (until now) been asked to step aside in the race for the states governorship next year. With his popularity hovering around 20%, the political operatives in Washington, and the state could no longer standby and listen to Paterson not get the message that he has no chance to win election to a seat that was passed on to him with Elliot Spritzer’s resignations .

Democrat Andrew Cuomo, the states Attorney General, and ex Clinton era HUD Secretary,  is currently the states front runner for the spot and barring any major problems (no republican on the horizon will be able to touche him) will become the states next governor. He currently polls in the 60 to 79% range, easily beating the highest known Republican, Rudy Guilani.

The interesting thing to watch will the scramble for the Attorney General spot, since, if Cuomo moves on, the last two  democratic Attorney General’s will have ascended to the governorship…………

Update:……Paterson is defiant in telling the White House he’ll run anyways…but he’s gone……and he knows it…..New Yorker’s and the New York Democratic party will not stand for a Governor that is a problem to a democratic White House, and it’s ability to control money, and favors coming to the state…..The White House, the piece mentions, still remembers the fact that it’s first pick for the New York State Senate was Caroline Kennedy, whom Paterson did not pick, in favor of Kristin Gillibrand , who Schumer wanted, but is still weak in downstate New York…..

Paterson has no friends……….

Sen. Gillibrand the blah choice………

Well,….. Schumer and the White House have had their way……Kristen Gillibrand remains the democratic choice for junior senator for New York…….and quite frankly, she maybe a liability…….If someone like pollster Lee  Miringoff , up at Marist, can have George Pataki( remember the budget deficits he grew?) ahead of her by 4% points, right now , she’s in trouble………..seriously, I never thought she was the right pick, and she hasn’t, and probably never will, do well in the downstate area…like the present governor, New York Democrats have set them selves up for problems next year….Cuomo will take care of the governors spot…..but Gillibrand????
