Quinnipiac University (4/26-5/1; 1,076 NY registered voters; 473 Democratic likely primary voters) tested the formulating Democratic gubernatorial primary race between two-term incumbent Andrew Cuomo and actress Cynthia Nixon. For the third time, a poll finds Gov. Cuomo comfortably leading the intra-party contest, but not overwhelmingly so. According to the Q-Poll, the Governor’s re-nomination margin is 50-28%, which is actually more competitive than found in the two earlier polls.
The survey results are providing signs that this developing campaign will be one to watch. The New York state office primary is scheduled for September 13th. The NY federal primary, which will determine US Senate and House nominees, occurs on June 26th.
