ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo is much more popular among New York Democrats than his celebrated primary challenger Cynthia Nixon, according to a Siena College Research Institute poll released Wednesday.

Cuomo led Nixon 61-26 overall in the poll, and he came out on top in each of the 23 demographic categories broken out in the poll. Self-identified liberals preferred Cuomo by 65-24, African-Americans, 74-17, and women, 63-26. Suburban voters, who have served as the best bellwether in most recent Democratic statewide primaries, favored Cuomo 76-13.

The governor was viewed favorably by 67 percent of Democrats, while 28 percent hold an unfavorable view of him. Nixon’s comparable numbers polled at 40-26.

“Nixon has a lot of catching up to do to make this race competitive,” said Siena spokesman Steve Greenberg. “Cuomo is well-known and well-liked by New York Democrats. Although similar percentages of Democrats view Cuomo and Nixon unfavorably, Cuomo has a significantly larger percentage of Democrats viewing him favorably.”

1. Wasn't she endorsed by Bernie's "Our Revolution" group?

Considering the track record of their endorsements, it's like the "kiss of death" for so many candidates. (Either than, or the pickers-and-choosers at "Our Revolution" aren't doing a very good job of deciding which are the strongest candidates who can put Democrats in the best position to defeat our GOP opponents.)

All I'm saying is that it's easy for me to imagine whenever a candidate hears that s/he's been "endorsed" by Our Revolution s/he is probably secretly thinking: "FUCK!"
