Governor Cuomo has apparently not suffered too much politically in the wake of the Moreland scandal. The Quinnipiac University poll that came out on Wednesday has Cuomo leading Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino by a two to one margin. Cuomo is at 56 percent, Astorino 28 percent, essentially unchanged from the Quinnipiac May survey, which would seem to prove - at least for now - that allegations of political wrong-doing with respect to the anti-corruption commission have not affected Cuomo's popularity with voters.
Meantime, 88 percent of those polled had no opinion on Cuomo's primary challenger, Fordham University Law Professor Zephyr Teachout. Both Teachout, and to a lesser degree, Astorino, still are plagued by the same nagging problem: a lack of name recognition.
The survey of 1,034 voters was conducted from Thursday through Sunday. It has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.
