The President, The Governor and the Poll Numbers

Ken Lovett noted Andrew Cuomo hasn’t made time to see President Obama during the president’s three trips to New York this month.

Cuomo’s people say he is busy running the state and is not actively trying to avoid the president.

Today’s Siena poll of Western New York’s 26th Congressional District shows that whatever the reason might be, it’s also good politics for Cuomo.

Here are the favorable / unfavorable numbers for the two Democratic executives in the relatively-conservative 26th district. 

39-57 Obama
72-20 Cuomo
