In Case Bloomberg ’08 Doesn’t Work Out…

Michael Bloomberg is 2 percentage points behind Eliot Spitzer among New York voters in a hypothetical gubernatorial race, according to a poll released today by Siena.

Spitzer leads Bloomberg 43 to 41 statewide, but Bloomberg leads Spitzer among city voters, 49 to 37 percent. Upstate, Spitzer leads Bloomberg 55 to 24 percent.

Somewhere, Joe Bruno and Fred Dicker are smiling.

Other numbers from the poll show Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani leading their races for the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations, respectively.
