Poll: New Yorkers Cool to Bloomberg or Clinton as Vice President

New Yorkers don’t want to see Hillary Clinton or Michael Bloomberg as anyone’s vice presidential candidate, according to a poll out today by Siena.

New York voters oppose a Clinton vice presidency 49 – 41 percent. They oppose a Bloomberg vice presidency 49 – 36 percent.

But — just for fun, I guess — Siena determined that an Obama-Clinton ticket leads a McCain-Bloomberg ticket in New York 55 – 37 percent.

Separately, Michael Bloomberg leads David Paterson in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup for governor in 2010 (making it the second poll to show that kind of result.)

And Democrats chose Paterson over Andrew Cuomo, 43 percent to 31 percent.
