Caroline Kennedy Fades In New York Senate Poll – Andrew Cuomo Now Preferred

Caroline Kennedy August 2008
Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, seen here in August 25, 2008, addresses the Democratic National Convention. Voters in New York state are not excited by the idea of Caroline Kennedy entering the Senate, but believe she will be picked anyway, a poll released Wednesday shows

In the latest Quinnipiac Poll, Caroline Kennedy has cooled with New York State voters and now more voters prefer New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo.

The poll:

  • N.Y Attorney General Andrew Cuomo – 31%
  • Caroline Kennedy – 24%
  • U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney – 6%
  • U.S. Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand – 5%
  • U.S. Rep. Steve Israel – 2%
  • Somebody else – 18%
  • Undecided – 14%

From January 8 – 12, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,664 New York State registered voters, with a margin of error of +/- 2.4 percentage points.

However, New York voters continue to say that Governor David Patterson WILL appoint Kennedy 38-33%.

Cuomo leads Kennedy 31 – 20 percent among upstate voters and 36 – 22 percent in the suburbs, while Kennedy gets 31 percent of New York City voters to Cuomo’s 29 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. Men back Cuomo 32 – 23 percent while women back him 31 – 25 percent.

New York State voters say 48 – 37 percent that Kennedy is not qualified to be a U.S. Senator and 40 – 37 percent that she would not be a good Senator. Democrats say 47 – 35 percent that she is qualified, while Republicans say 65 – 24 percent that she is not qualified. Independent voters say 51 – 34 percent that she is not qualified.

The bloom is definitely off the Caroline Kennedy rose by her disasterous early campaigning in upsate New York. She tried to strong arm the Governor and still MAY succeed to the benefit of the New York GOP.

Want to wager that Sarah Palin hopes Kennedy is chosen?

Stay tuned….
