Rasmussen — 2010 New York Governor: Cuomo Beats GOP Challengers, Paterson Doesn’t

A new Election 2010 survey in the state shows Paterson running even with former GOP Congressmen Rick Lazio, with both men capturing 38% of the vote. Lazio, who unsuccessfully challenged Hillary Clinton for the U.S. Senate in 2000, formally announced his candidacy on Tuesday.

Paterson trails former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani 50% to 39%, although Giuliani who unsuccessfully sought the Republican presidential nomination last year has not declared his candidacy for the gubernatorial race. The new numbers are a slight improvement for Paterson who was down 55% to 33% to Giuliani in July.
