Paterson Plummets

Governor David Paterson's slide in the polls continues. Last week Cuomo delivered a speech in Albany where he sounded very much a candidate for Governor and this week polls support his intention.

Qunnipiac University that shows Cuomo is favor over Paterson by a 55-23 margin in a head to head primary matchup.

What is taking Paterson - Caroline Kennedy.
"The Caroline Kennedy mix-up still haunts Gov. David Paterson," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "In numbers which could tempt Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to take another shot at Governor, Paterson trails Cuomo 2 - 1 among Democratic voters and scratches out a tie with Mayor Rudolph Giuliani in the general election."
Interestingly enough Senator Gillibrand succumbs in a primary challenge to Representative Carolyn McCarthy of Long Island.

Rep. McCarthy tops Sen. Gillibrand in a Democratic primary 34 - 24 percent, with 39 percent undecided.

According to media/Quinnipiac, McCarthy beats Gillibrand head to head. IF this is true, it is because of recent media stories demonizing Sen G, but that's ok. We understand.

Two points are proven by this. First, sophisticated people have a favorite and two, there are more illegal aliens in NY State than cows.

10:20 I agree with you. Schumer stands for nothing. I was hoping Gillibrand would be different. If a couple of tears by McCarthy types are enough to change her beliefs, then she had no backbone from the beginning. Here's hoping she keeps her distance from those NYC creeps.
