New Poll: Democrats Want To Ditch Joe Biden For Andrew Cuomo

Early in America’s growing coronavirus crisis Joe Biden was more or less persona non grata as even his ardent supporters began to complain that seemingly everyone else, including his Democratic presidential rival Bernie Sanders, was giving frequent telecast addresses to the public on their proposed course of action amid the pandemic and accompanying economic crisis.

Of course, once 77-year old Biden did belatedly start giving at-home media interviews and broadcasts, it didn’t go well — and the now Democratic primary confirmed winner has continued to be dogged by questions of his mental acumen, given his sometimes “confused” statements during interviews

At the same time New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has emerged as a Democratic ‘hero’ amid the pandemic, which has hit his state hardest, giving daily dramatic press briefings, often articulating a decisive plan of action under stressful conditions. 

So it makes sense that the majority of Dems now appear to have buyer’s remorse. A new national poll published Friday by NY Post finds “56 percent of Democrats prefer Cuomo”. 

And just 44 percent want the presumptive nominee Joe Biden. As the Post writes this is a “12-point margin well outside the 4.8 percent margin of error for the Democratic sample.”

The poll was commissioned by the conservative Club for Growth. The highlights are as follows:

  • 57% of those from any party who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 favor Cuomo.
  • 53% of those who voted for Trump in 2016 want Democrats to keep Biden.
  • 55% of black voters favor Cuomo and 45% want Biden.
  • 67% of voters from any party between 25-34 prefer Cuomo.

The poll was conducted April 3rd through 6th, and surveyed nearly one thousand people.

A statement by the Club for Growth was just devastating. 

“With every major news event Democrats realize more and more how bad of a candidate Joe Biden is, and Democrats now preferring Cuomo is just another example,” Joe Kildea, vice president of communications for the American economic organization was quoted as saying.

Amid his rising popularity and increased national visibility, Cuomo denied last month that he wanted to run for president.

But we’ll see if at this point his answers to this question suddenly get more vague, especially given the remote but not unthinkable possibility that Biden’s mental faculties decline to an extent that drastic last-minute DNC intervention is required.
