With all the fuss surrounding the race for Governor, its still about a 15 point race for Andrew Cuomo over Carl Paladino, according to the latest from Marist. Its not the huge numbers Cuomo enjoyed over the summer, but still a daunting task for Paladino.
Mr. Cuomo can pretty much rope-a-dope Paladino the rest of the way....Argue over debates and maybe do one at the last minute....Let the press continue to fight with Paladino.....Have your surrogates scare traditional Democratic groups by calling Carl a racist who wants to ban abortion.
It may not be the big, slobbering margin of vistory the last AG had in his race for Governor....but as we found out...too big a mandate does not a good governor make.
