Poll: Most Dems Favor Cuomo In Gubernatorial Primary

April 14, 2018 - 5:24 pm

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A new poll by the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion finds that Gov. Andrew Cuomo holds a commanding lead over political newcomer Cynthia Nixon, among democratic voters.

Cuomo is favored by most democrats in the September primary, but Lee Miringgoff said the former Sex And The City star has a strong fan base.

"These are democrats and they're talking about enthusiasm, and if turnout is low enthusiasm could make a difference in this, and right now we're talking about a 24 point edge for Nixon over Cuomo in terms of those who are most enthusiastic," he said.

The survey questioned almost 700 registered Democrats in early April.
