Cuomo Builds Lead Over Party Foe, Trails Pataki

April 19, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Andrew Cuomo has opened a double-digit lead over his rival for the Democratic nomination for governor and has gone on the attack against Republican Gov. George Pataki, whom he trails by a wide margin.

A Quinnipiac University poll showed Cuomo leading state Comptroller H. Carl McCall, 44% to 30%. Cuomo's lead has doubled since late February.

The new Quinnipiac poll also showed Cuomo, the son of former Gov. Mario Cuomo, trailing Pataki, 54% to 30%.

On Wednesday, Cuomo said Pataki did not take enough of a leadership role after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
