There is Unpopular, There is Hated, and Then There is..........

Andrew Cuomo would trounce you primary for Mayor.

Hizonner Eric Adams, God's anointed Mayor of New York City, (At least according to Eric Adams) may have a bit of a problem.
Fallen ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo is getting much more support than Mayor Eric Adams in a hypothetical head-to-head Democratic primary race for City Hall in 2025, a stunning new poll released Tuesday claims.

Of those Democrats with an opinion, 44% favored Cuomo to 24% for Adams with one-third undecided, according to the survey conducted by American Pulse & Research Polling.


“Our American Pulse survey revealed what I found to be a big surprise: If Andrew Cuomo ran as a Democrat for mayor, he would decisively trounce Mayor Adams in a primary,” said Dustin Olson of American Pulse Research & Polling.

“While surprising, it does make sense, as New Yorkers also gave Mayor Adams the distinction of being the most unfavorably viewed politician among all those we tested in the city.”


The poll — which was paid for by a group headed by Adams’ 2021 GOP opponent, Curtis Sliwa — also found that 57% of all voters had a favorable impression of lefty Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the highest of elected officials mentioned in the poll, while Adams had the worst unfavorable rating of 58%.
Ah, yes.  Curtis Sliwa, founder of the Guardian Anglos, right-wing radio host, and fascist.

It might be advisable then to take people numbers with a grain of salt
But the exiled ex-governor — who resigned from office in 2021 amid accusations of sexual misconduct — would lose were he to challenge Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in a Democratic primary the next year, the survey said.

Well, there is that.

I am not a big fan of Kirsten Gillibrand, but she is orders of magnitude better than "Rat faced Andy" Cuomo.


A group called Save the Senate, chaired by Sliwa and aimed at bolstering the GOP in the US Senate, helped finance the poll.

Because, of course they did. 

My condolences to the people of the great City of New York.  If I had to choose between Adams and Cuomo, I might write in Ed Koch, and he's been dead for a decade.
