Though Attorney General Andrew Cuomo's opponents have warned him his bid against Gov. Paterson will be "racially divisive," a new poll shows most voters don't think so. 80 percent of respondents in a Quinnipiac Univeristy poll said a run-off between the two Democrats would not upset racial relations, reports the NY Post. Among black voters, 73 percent said there'd be no racial split. This week Paterson and Republican candidate Rick Lazio both chastised Cuomo for waiting to officially declare his candidacy, but the poll showed 78 percent of voters aren't impatient for the announcement. It also confirmed that, among Democratic voters, the attorney general is still twice as popular as the state's first-ever black governor, reports NY1.
