2010 Watch: NY Governor

No good news for Governor Paterson in the latest Quinnipiac poll:

Gov. Paterson was on the ropes yesterday after a stunning new poll showed Attorney General Andrew Cuomo clobbering him by 32 points in a primary matchup.

Cuomo – who sources say is eyeing a run for governor – defeats fellow Democrat Paterson by 55-23 percent, the Quinnipiac University survey found.

And bad news for Rudy, too:

Against potential GOP challenger Rudy Giuliani, Paterson – who governs a state with a strong majority of Democrat-registered voters – runs even at 43 percent, the survey shows.

But Cuomo thumps Giuliani by 51-37 percent, the poll shows.
