Poll: Bloomberg and Giuliani Top Paterson for 2010

When voters in a new Quinnipiac poll out today were asked who they’d like to elect as governor in 2010, Michael Bloomberg came out on top, slightly edging out Rudy Giuliani.

The survey gave respondents four choices: Bloomberg, Giuliani, David Paterson and Andrew Cuomo.

Paterson, who enjoys a 67-20 approval rating according to this poll, came in third.

Here are the numbers:

30 percent for Bloomberg
26 percent for Giuliani
23 percent for Paterson
15 percent for Cuomo

Also, the poll found that 64 percent of voters favored Paterson’s decision to force state agencies to recognize same-sex marriages performed outside New York, but another 55 percent said it was something the legislature, not the governor, should have handled.
