Levy slips behind Paladino in GOP slugfest

Filed under: News

The New York Post is reporting that a statewide Siena poll released this morning shows Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy – despite backing from Cox and two months of open campaigning – has actually fallen behind Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino in Republican primary for governor.

The survey found Levy would draw 14 percent of the vote in a hypothetical primary match-up – down from 15 percent in April. In the meantime, Paladino, who has been burning his millions on ads and battling outrage over racist and sexist e-mails he sent around before he became a candidate, jumped from 13 percent to 16 percent. Andrew Cuomo still maintains a significant lead over any republican candidate.

    Um, the major problem would be actually getting the support of people that matter – aka chairmen and committeemen that decide who the nominee is. And considering Paladino has only gotten the support of one county, it doesn’t look promising for him. Talk about messing with facts!
