Poll: New York State Wants Hillary Over Cuomo in White House in 2016

Wednesday, 25 Jul 2012 09:43 AM

By Patrick Hobin

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is New York State’s runaway choice to be president in 2016 over Governor Andrew Cuomo, despite Cuomo’s soaring approval rating, according to a new Quinnipiac poll.

The former New York senator would make a good president, according to 61 percent of those polled, with 34 percent saying she would not. Cuomo had the support of 40 percent when it came to whether he would make a good president, the July 17 – 23 poll said. Voters say 54-30 percent that Clinton would make a better president than Cuomo, who boasts a new high 73-16 percent approval rating, the poll said.

In the race for the White House, President Barack Obama buries Mitt Romney among New York State voters 55 – 32 percent, according to Quinnipiac and Obama leads 86 – 7 percent among Democrats and 51 – 32 percent among independent voters, while Republicans back Romney 75 – 14 percent.

“ . . . New Yorkers clearly aren’t ready to talk yet about Andrew Cuomo and the White House in the same breath,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “Former Senator and now Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leads the 2016 guess list as we do a little mid-summer speculation. But New York State voters really like the man in Albany. The governor gets high marks – over 70 percent job approval for the second straight poll.”
