Poll: 55% of New Yorkers Want Hillary to Move On

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

According to the latest Marist poll, 55% of New York voters want President-elect Obama to choose Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State. While just 31% think Clinton should remain in the U.S. Senate and 14% aren’t quite sure.

To fill her seat, 43% of voters think Gov. David Paterson should appoint State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. While Rep. Nydia Velazquez and Rep. Nita Lowey tie for a distant second with 5% each.

The poll suggests New Yorkers believe Clinton would be a capable Secretary of State, but the results also seem to suggest most New Yorkers aren’t particularly attached to Clinton

    I don’t think anyone would “miss” Hillary Clinton. She’s not exactly a warm and endearing person and most see her as rather cold and calculating. The primary certainly helped pull back the curtain and reveal her to a larger number of people who didn’t really know her before.

    AG Andrew Cuomo? I think he would be a great replacement for Hillary’s senate seat. I never thought of him but he’s a real New Yorker and a real liberal. Not a carpetbagging DINO Dem like Hillary.

    Cuomo would make a wonderful senator.

    He’s very smart, his pedigree is perfect and he knows his way around the halls of power.

  4. Dick Small says:

    I’d love Hillary to move on.

    Andrew Cuomo is an empty suit. He trades on his father’s name, but is nothing compared to him. Besides, we need to get nepotism out of politics.

    I hope Obama doesn’t pick Ms. Clinton. I don’t want a pro war Christian fundamentalist as Secretary of State.
