Cuomo Has 19-Point Lead in New York Governor Race, Marist Says
Sept. 24 (Bloomberg) — Democrat Andrew Cuomo has a 19- point lead among likely voters in New York in his bid for governor against Republican Carl Paladino, according to a Marist College poll.
The telephone survey of 915 registered voters, 617 of whom said they’re likely to vote, was conducted Sept. 19-22. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points for the likely voters.
Results from a Siena Research Institute poll released on Sept. 23 showed Cuomo backed by 57 percent of registered voters, with 24 percent favoring Paladino and 8 percent for Lazio.
The 19-point lead for Cuomo, 52, contrasts with a Quinnipiac University survey published Sept. 22 that showed him leading by 6 percentage points. Quinnipiac polled registered voters who said they were likely to cast a ballot.
