Cuomo Leads Paladino 56% to 37% for N.Y. Governor, Poll Says

Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- New York Democrat Andrew Cuomo held a 19 percentage-point lead over Republican Carl Paladino among likely voters with less than a week remaining in the race for governor, a Marist College poll reported today.

Cuomo, 52, the state attorney general and son of former Governor Mario Cuomo, received support from 56 percent of likely voters, the poll said. Paladino, 64, a Buffalo-based real-estate developer running with Tea Party support, was backed by 37 percent. An Oct. 22 Marist poll showed Cuomo with a 23 percentage-point lead, 60 percent to 37 percent.

Women supported Cuomo over Paladino, 64 percent to 29 percent. Among men, Cuomo led 47 percent to 45 percent. More than three out of four voters, 78 percent, said the state is headed in the wrong direction, the poll reported.

“With this level of dissatisfaction there was an opportunity for Republicans that they have failed to take advantage of as we approach Election Day,” said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion in Poughkeepsie, New York.

The Oct. 26-28 telephone survey of 805 New York state voters had a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points, and five points among 415 who described themselves as likely voters, Miringoff said.
