If her opponent will not do something special, looks like incumbent New York governor Kathy Hochul is headed for victory in the 2022 New York gubernatorial race.
The latest poll has shown that Hochul is taking a commanding lead in the Democratic primary for governor — with more than double the support of her nearest rival, state Attorney Letitia James.
Based on the poll data released by In the Field Global, Hochul leads James 40 percent to 17 percent among primary voters, with 7 percent of Democrats supporting the potential bid of Mayor Bill de Blasio or Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, who is a candidate.
About 30 percent of Democrats are undecided.
In a possible head-to-head match-up, Hochul leads James with 44 percent support to 26 percent.
In the Field Global pollster, Rob Cole explained the huge lead of Hochul could be attributed to her doing the right things in her job.
“Hochul is doing all the right things and she has the bully pulpit,” Cole said.
Another poll released last week by Data For Progress showed Hochul with a 14 point lead over James.
