Poll: Bloomberg Would Rock Spitzer

Written by John DeSio on . Posted in Politics, Posts.

If we elected a new governor today, we would elect Mike Bloomberg.

A new Siena Poll released today shows that the mayor would crush Eliot Spitzer in an election today, 50-37. Spitzer does best Bloomberg among Democrats, though Republicans favor the mayor 70-18. Bloomberg leads by 28 points
in New York City
and 31 points in the downstate suburbs. Spitzer has a 15-point lead over
Bloomberg upstate.

"What a difference a
summer can make. In June, Spitzer had a small lead but now Mayor Mike’s lead is
significant. Eliot Spitzer should be happy his re-election is three years
away," said Steven Greenberg, a spokesperson for the Siena polling group.
