New York Gubernatorial Poll

On August 5, an NBC 4 NY/Wall Street Journal/Marist Poll was released for the New York gubernatorial race. The results: Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo 54%; Republican Rob Astorino 23%; Green Party nominee Howie Hawkins 7%; other 1%; undecided 16%. See here for more detail, including a breakdown by party affiliation.

The last time the nominee of a nationally-organized party, other than the Democratic and Republican Parties, received as much as 7% for New York Governor was 1998, when the Reform Party (which was the Independence Party within New York at the time) polled 7.69% for Thomas Golisano. Although the Independence Party did even better in 2002, by then it wasn’t part of a nationally-organized party.

As far as is known, the only other candidate who is petitioning for a place on the November 2014 ballot is Michael McDermott, the Libertarian nominee. Thanks to Michael for the link.

  1. The Constitution Party & Socialist Workers Party also nominated candidates. The CP candidate is Donna Mulvihill. The SWP candidate is John Studer.

      I envy New York voters. Here in Illinois, it’s quite likely that the only two choices for governor we’ll have will be Quinn and Rauner.

  2. But the rent is even higher now than it was when it was too damn high!

    How about the Rent and Independence Parties nominees?

    I live in PA. In my district, there will definitely be only two choices for every office. I will not be voting.

    “How about the Rent and Independence Parties nominees?”

    As far as I know the Rent Is Too Damn High Party did not nominate a candidate. The Independence Party nominated Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo.
