Looks like New York governor Kathy Hochul is headed for her second term this 2022.
The latest poll released on Tuesday showed Hochul taking a commanding lead in the Democratic primary for governor of New York with over 30 points lead over her nearest challenger.
The latest poll conducted by Siena College showed New York’s first female governor getting the support of 46 percent of Democratic voters.
Hochul’s number is 34 points higher than former New York City mayor Bill de Blasio who only scored 12 points.
It was learned that on the same day the poll was released, de Blasio tweeted that he will not run for governor this year.
New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams took third place with 11 points, followed by Long Island Rep. Tom Suozzi, trailing with six percent.
The same poll also asked voters what they think of new New York City Mayor Eric Adams – who got a 41 percent favorability rating compared to 19 percent who said they viewed him unfavorably.
The poll also showed that more Republican voters said they viewed him favorably – 29 percent – compared to those who viewed him unfavorably, at 20 percent.
To get the data, Siena Poll asked 806 registered voters from Jan. 9 through Jan. 13 and has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
