New Yorkers Favor Cuomo to Replace Clinton
The tides of support have changed in the contest over who voters think should fill Hillary Clinton’s vacant U.S. Senate seat. 40% of registered voters in New York State say Governor David Paterson should appoint New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to the position while 25% believe Caroline Kennedy should assume the role. That’s a marked difference for Cuomo from just one month ago when the Marist Poll showed him and Kennedy in a tie with each receiving 25% of New Yorkers’ support. Kennedy’s backing remains at a standstill.
