June 22, 2006 - Cuomo Widens Dem Lead In Attorney General Race, Quinnipiac University New York State Poll Finds; Bush Approval Rebounds From Lowest Ever
Former Federal Housing Secretary Andrew Cuomo leads former New York City Public Advocate Mark Green among New York State Democrats in the race for State Attorney General 45 - 27 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. No other candidate gets more than 5 percent and 20 percent of Democrats are undecided.

This compares to a 34 - 26 percent Cuomo lead among Democrats in a May 18 poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

Either Democrat leads former Westchester District Attorney Jeanine Pirro, the Republican candidate, in a general election matchup:
  • Cuomo leads Pirro 51 - 31 percent;
  • Green leads Pirro 46 - 32 percent.
"Andrew Cuomo is pulling away from Mark Green in the Democratic primary for Attorney General. Charlie King and Sean Maloney simply don't register. No doubt, that will change if they succeed in getting petition signatures," said Maurice Carroll, Director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

"Republicans are hoping Jeanine Pirro can climb back from her embarrassing brief run for Senator. The current numbers say she's got a long way to go."

By a 27 - 19 percent margin, New York voters have a favorable opinion of Cuomo, with 24 percent mixed and 30 percent who haven't heard enough to form an opinion.

Green gets a 22 - 12 percent favorability, with 19 percent mixed and 47 percent who haven't formed an opinion.

Pirro has a split 18 - 17 percent favorability, with 13 percent mixed and 52 percent who haven't formed an opinion.

The Republican Primary to challenge U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton is a virtual tie, with 27 percent for former Pentagon official Kathleen McFarland, 24 percent for former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer and 43 percent undecided.

Sen. Clinton has a substantial lead over either challenger:
  • 58 - 31 percent over McFarland;
  • 57 - 33 percent over Spencer.
Clinton has a 58 - 35 percent job approval. By a 48 - 33 percent margin, voters have a favorable opinion of her, with 16 percent mixed and 3 percent who haven't heard enough to form an opinion. For McFarland and Spencer, at least 74 percent of voters haven't heard enough to form an opinion.

"It's a stand-off for the Republican right to lose to Sen. Clinton. Almost half of GOP voters don't choose between John Spencer and Kathleen McFarland. Would it be fair to wonder if they really care?" Carroll said. Bush Approval

New York State voters disapprove 68 - 28 percent of the job President George W. Bush is doing, compared to a 75 - 22 percent disapproval May 18, his lowest ever in any Quinnipiac University poll.

From June 12 - 19, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,204 New York State registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.8 percentage points. The survey includes 382 Republicans with a margin of error of +/- 5 percent, and 517 Democrats with a margin of error of +/- 4.3 percent.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Florida and nationwide as a public service and for research.
