Governor Cuomo has made a couple of noticeable political mistakes the last few days.
First, he tried to block an ad by Marc Molinaro from airing:
“… Given the false, misleading and defamatory content of the Molinaro advertisement, we respectfully request that you cease and desist from any further broadcast or publication,” the letter said in part …”
Here is the video in question:
“… It was a dumb move because Cuomo has no upside. He will lose if he looks like a mean or condescending bully and Nixon will win if she comes across as pleasant and stands up to the governor …”
Prediction: Nixon is going to “win” the debate by being pleasant. I don’t think she will win the Democrat primary, but I could see her getting 40% of the vote.
Miner has a history of supporting gun control:
- Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner joins call for better gun control
- Mayors to Congress: ‘Get a Backbone’ and Pass Gun Control
- Miner: Loose Gun Laws In Other States Impact NY
I have not seen any polls that included Miner, but if she starts polling in double digits expect more dumb moves by Cuomo.
