Poll Watch: 2010 New York Governor’s Race Has Rudy Giuliani Far Ahead of Governor David Paterson

New York Governor's Poll

In the latest Rasmussen poll, Republican and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is far ahead of incumbent New York Governor David Paterson. Rudy is behind if he runs against Democrat Attorney General Andrew Cuomo but by only 7 points.
It’s a knockout for Rudy Giuliani if he’s the Republican candidate for governor in New York next year running against incumbent Democrat David Paterson. But if Andrew Cuomo is Giuliani’s opponent, chalk up a win for the Democrat. At least that’s the way it looks in the summer of 2009.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state shows Giuliani beating Paterson by 22 points, 55% to 33%. Eight percent (8%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent are undecided.

However, Cuomo tops Giuliani by seven points – 48% to 41% – in a match-up between the two, with six percent (6%) favoring some other candidate and six percent (6%) not sure who they’ll vote for.

At this point, it appears Giuliani is likely to face the tougher of the two Democrats since a survey of Democratic Primary voters shows Cuomo ahead of Paterson 61% to 27%.

But, will Andrew Cuomo be able to push out David Paterson?

And, with Obama’s and generic Democrat Party poll numbers in the tank, will Cuomo decide to run in a tough race against Republican Rudy?

Stay tuned……
