NYT Poll: Paladino Trails By A Mile In NY-GOV Race

While New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino remains in the national spotlight for his controversial comments, polls suggest his chances of actually being elected are slim to none.

A newly released New York Times poll of the contest finds Democratic state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo leading the Republican by 35 points, 59%-24%. This is the first poll conducted by The Times on the race, so there are no numbers for direct comparison. The contest’s last survey prior to today’s was an October 13 SurveyUSA poll that had Paladino trailing 59%-33%.

The TPM Poll Average shows Cuomo on top, 54.8%-36.8%. The margin of error for the latest survey is ±3.0 percentage points.
