Rochester Business Journal

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s approval rating has reached a new high of 73 percent, but only 39 percent of New York voters want him to run for president in 2016, a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows.

Some 54 percent of registered New York voters surveyed think Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would make a better president than Cuomo, with 30 percent favoring Cuomo, the poll shows.

Roughly 36 percent of those surveyed want Cuomo to seek the presidency in four years, with 26 percent undecided.

Some 40 percent think Cuomo would make a good president, with 30 percent saying he would not and 30 percent undecided, results show.

President Barack Obama is the favorite among voters polled for the 2012 race, with 55 percent for the Democratic incumbent and 32 percent on the side of likely Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

Obama leads 86 percent to 7 percent among Democrats surveyed, and 51 percent to 32 percent among independents. Romney leads 75 percent to 14 percent among Republicans.

The poll was conducted July 17-23, with 1,779 voters surveyed.
