New poll numbers released today indicate that Governor Paterson hasn't been able to bounce back in the eyes of voters despite recent moves to introduce gay marriage legislation, push the MTA bailout through legislature and an aggressive stance indicating that he has every intention of running in next year's election. A Quinnipiac poll shows the governor's disapproval rating remaining at over sixty percent (versus 28% approving) statewide and still significantly trailing Andrew Cuomo, including among black voters. Will a Cuomo challenge continue to be presented as alienating to African-Americans if that remains the case? Interestingly, despite Paterson stepping up his early 2010 campaign, over sixty percent of New Yorkers don't believe he will run—almost half also believe that such a run would be "bad for other Democrats."
