Poll: Governor Leads GOP Challenger 56 to 28 Percent

A new poll released by Quinnipiac University shows the Democratic Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, maintaining a 2-to-1 advantage over his Republican challenger, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino.

The gubernatorial election takes place in early November.

Cuomo has been dogged recently by allegations that his administration interfered with an anti-corruption commission, but the survey indicates the episode has done little to sway voters.

The poll finds that many voters remain unfamiliar with Astorino.

    Most polls said Astorino was losing 2 to 1 for the Westchester County Executive’s race, too.

    Polls.

    Now they’re unfamiliar with Astorino. But on Election Day, they won’t be. They were unfamiliar with Pataki and Giuliani too.

    Cuomo is a slippery New York politician with a proven track record of saying and doing anything for votes.

    That’s the only reason he and his ilk have moved to the center, suddenly claiming as their own leadership economic ideas like cutting taxes that Republicans have been hollering for decades: Because they knew that New York voters are sick and tired of old Democratic ideas that don’t work.

    Read the New York Times (!) article on what a hypocrite he is: “The Moreland Commission can investigate any office, including mine–but of course, if they get too close to my union buddies, I’ll sic my attack dog Jerry Schwartz [or whatever the guy’s name is] on them.”

    Phony fraud that this guy is.

    And that’s not even talking about his vote for moral chaos (i.e. “marriage redefinition”), his sucking up to our communities and then slapping us across the face with BOTH hands by voting down the private-school student background bill, his transparent trip to Israel to further suck up to the Jewish vote, his silence on the city’s attack on circumcision religious rights or rights of Williamsburg store owners to set their own rules for customers, and the list goes on.

    Don’t forget his tax-dodging non-reportage of interior renovations of his home, and refusal to let the town assessor into the house to do a fair assessment. Rules don’t apply to him, you see. They’re for ordinary people.

    Cuomo is no friend of ours.

    When push comes to shove and people in our community learn more about Astorino, you can be sure who they’ll vote for, especially in this day and age when we need a true friend. I’ll give you a hint: It’s not Cuomo.
