New Poll Finds Paterson and Cuomo Primary Not Racially Divisive
By Ryan Morden
Oswego, NY – A new poll finds that if State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo were to challenge Gov. David Paterson in a Primary as expected, the contest would not be racially divisive.
Some supporters of Paterson, the state's first African-American Governor, have said that a primary challenge from Italian-American Andrew Cuomo could harm race relations in New York.
However, black voters share similar opinions as white voters said Mikey Carroll, a pollster. New Yorkers do not think a primary between the two candidates would have anything to do with race, he said.
Quinnipiac University, located about 90 minutes North of New York City conducted the poll.
Also, a Marist College Poll finds that Paterson's slight bump in popularity, that he enjoyed after running a series of TV ads, has dissipated.
