Marist: Cuomo, Schumer and Gillibrand With Comfortable Leads


Here’s the results from today’s Marist Poll on governor and the two U.S. Senate seats.

— Andrew Cuomo: 56%; Carl Paladino: 37%; Other: 3%; Undecided: 4%

— Sen. Chuck Schumer: 60%; Jay Townsend: 36%; Other: 1%; Undecided: 3%

— Kirsten Gillibrand: 55%; Joe DioGuardi: 40%; Other: 1%; Undecided: 4%

“If there ever was a year for the GOP to punch through in New York, this was it.  But, in these three contests that hasn’t happened,” said Marist pollster Lee Miringoff.  “There may be a political tidal wave nationally, yet in New York, the water still has a tint of Democratic blue.”

Gannett commissioned a Survey USA poll and its results Friday found similarly big leads for the three Democrats. The positive for Paladino in the Survey USA poll: It showed him with a large lead, 55 percent to 36 percent, in western New York, which included the Rochester and Buffalo areas.

The Marist poll didn’t break out western New York from the rest of upstate. For all of upstate, Cuomo held a 47 percent to 45 percent lead over Paladino.

  1. “Cover UP” Cuomo is stock in the mud at the 55% level, just like Bloomberg was stock.

    It also looks like many of those who are running for the first time and trying to get the 50,000 votes have a very good shot at making it.

    The big question is will “The Rent is To Damn High” knock off the Independence Party for row “C”, Will Charles Barron and the Freedom Party beat the Working Families Party.

    Will the Greens out poll Kristin Davis and how about those Libertarian’s can they beat the Conservatives.

    JUST say NO to the Democ”RAT”ic Cover Up Gang of Schumer, Cuomo, DiNapoli, and the WATACHDOG AG “Eric Schneiderman Ruff Ruff
