New York Governor David Paterson and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani

Not a good week for New York Governor David Paterson. He appoints Blue Dog Democrat Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand to Hillary Clinton’s U.S. Senate seat and trashes Caroline Kennedy in the process. The LEFT and the Kennedy Klan are pissed and may gun for him at Democrat Primary time.

Now, the latest Marist poll has him losing to Mayor Michael Bloomberg and tied with Rudy Giuliani in a 2010 race for re-election as New York Governor.

If the 2010 election for governor were held today, Paterson would lose when matched against New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.  47% say they would rather vote for Bloomberg compared with 41% who say they would cast their ballot for the incumbent governor.  Bloomberg has consistently been a formidable potential opponent.  While Paterson edged out Bloomberg by four percentage points in Marist’s November survey, Bloomberg outpaced Paterson by 11 percentage points in October.  Paterson has also lost ground when matched up against former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.  In Marist’s previous polls, Paterson repeatedly distanced himself from the Republican.  His hypothetical lead in November was 10 percentage points.  Currently, Paterson and Giuliani are in a statistical dead heat.  Paterson receives 46% of voters’ support while Giuliani garners 47%.

The New York Democrat Party is not stupid and David Paterson is a sure loser to Bloomberg or Giuliani in 2010. The Dems will convince Paterson to accept some federal appointment from Obama and run Andrew Cuomo, Jr. as their Governor nominee.

If not, the next Governor of New York will be Bloomberg or Rudy.

Rudy Giuliani oct 20 2008

Supriya Jindal, wife of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, center, flanked by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, left, and Cindy McCain, wife of Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., take part in a campaign stop in Philadelphia, Monday, Oct. 20, 2008

Looks like Rudy will have a clear field against default New York Governor David Paterson particularly if New York City Mayor Bloomberg succeeds in his bid to change the NYC Charter and runs for a third.

Mayor Bloomberg‘s bombshell decision to seek a third term in office may lead to a furious battle with his predecessor and sometime antagonist, Rudy Giuliani, according to an intriguing scenario being discussed in high-level political circles.

The first part of the scenario is widely accepted: that if Bloomberg, who has flirted with running for governor, changes the City Charter and wins a third term, Gov. Paterson is certain to run for election in 2010.

Sources close to Paterson said the governor would likely have bowed out of the race if the popular Bloomberg had decided to run for governor.

The second part involves Giuliani’s not very-well-disguised interest in becoming the Republican candidate for governor in two years – and recent polls suggest the failed presidential contender would have a good chance of defeating Paterson.

This is providing John McCain does NOT ask Rudy to be his Attorney General of the United States. Notwithstanding, Flap looks forward to many Rudy vs. Bloomberg fights in the coming years.

Stay tuned…..
