Pirro Gets Near Cuomo, Practically Touches Green

And while we’re on the subject of polls..

A new Siena poll shows, among other things, that Andrew Cuomo would beat Jeanine Pirro by 15 points for attorney general, while Mark Green would beat her by a mere four.

Both results would be squeakers, of course, next to the governor’s race, in which Eliot Spitzer is leading John Faso by 53 points overall, and by 11 among Republicans.

The poll also shows Hillary Clinton still leading comfortably in her Senate race, but doing less well in the race she isn’t running for president, losing New York in hypothetical match-ups with Rudy Giuliani and John McCain, and performing less well here than Al Gore.

2. The general election. In November, whichever two candidates make it out of the gubernatorial primary will face off to become the next New Jersey governor. While Phil Murphy (pictured) is the presumed favorite in the race due to current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s dismal approval ratings tanking Republican credibility for many NJ voters, the results are still up in the air. Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
