ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New polls released Tuesday showed New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo with a big edge to keep his job as governor, the post he said landed him a spot on People magazine‘s recently released Sexiest Man Alive list.
A Quinnipiac University poll had the Democrat far ahead of one potential Republican challenger, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, 56 percent to 25 percent. Nearly 60 percent of voters said the incumbent should be re-elected next year.
“The only thing better than lots of opponents is an unknown opponent,” said Maurice Carroll, director of Quinnipiac’s Polling Institute. “He won’t have to work at all if he doesn’t feel like it.”
