48 Percent of New Yorkers Say Caroline Kennedy Not Qualified for Senate

Quinnipiac suggests that New Yorkers are cooling on the idea of Sen. Caroline Kennedy:

New York State voters have cooled on Caroline Kennedy and more voters now prefer State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo 31–24 percent for Hillary Clinton’s U.S. Senate seat, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.  U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney gets 6 percent, with 5 percent for U.S. Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand, 2 percent for U.S. Rep. Steve Israel, 18 percent for someone else and 14 percent undecided.

New York State voters say 48–37 percent that Kennedy is not qualified to be a U.S. Senator and 40–37 percent that she would not be a good Senator.

Apparently the prospect of Al Franken in the Senate is not yet making Caroline Kennedy look qualified by comparison.

Quinnipiac had some tough numbers for Kennedy last month, too.
