From Public Policy Polling

  • Caroline Kennedy is voters' top choice to replace Hillary Clinton in the senate.
  • Andrew Cuomo is the only other viable candidate with 23% of top support and 35% second choice support.
  • The other candidates included in this poll are: Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand, Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez, and Congressman Brian Higgins

» Commentary by Kris Lazaro (registered Democrat)

Caroline Kennedy is the most popular pick with New York Democrats as Hillary Clinton's replacement in the Senate, the newest survey from Public Policy Polling finds.

44% say she's their top choice, with another 24% saying she's their second choice from a list of potential candidates. The only other potential appointee to break double figures is Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, who was the top pick for 23% of respondents and the second with 35%. The other six candidates polled, including four members of Congress and two prominent local government officials, were the favored choice with anywhere from 3 to 6% of those surveyed.

Kennedy and Cuomo are each very popular with New York Democrats. Kennedy is viewed favorably by 75% and unfavorably by just 11%. Cuomo has a 76% approval rating in his work as Attorney General with just 9% unhappy with his job performance. ?It's clear that Caroline Kennedy and Andrew Cuomo are the only candidates under serious consideration who have much name recognition,? said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. ?The good news for David Paterson is that both of them are very popular with the Democratic base, and he couldn't really go wrong by appointing either of them.?

One other piece of good news for the Governor is that he has a more than 7:1 approval to disapproval rating with Democrats in the state, at 68-9. Any thought that he would need to appoint Cuomo to avoid a primary challenge in 2010 seems far fetched given his high level of popularity within the party.
