Rep. Lee Zeldin and Andrew Giuliani are holding comfortable leads over their closest GOP rivals for the Republican nomination for NY governor, a new poll shows.

The Zogby Strategies poll found Zeldin garnering 34.5% of support from Republicans in the Empire State, followed by Andrew Giuliani, a former Trump adviser and son of former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who received 28% support.

Former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino received just 16% in the poll, followed then by investor Harry Wilson with 14%. Another 8% are still unsure for whom they will vote.

On the Democratic side, Governor Kathy Hochul holds a wide lead over her Democratic rivals, with the incumbent governor sitting at 55%. Trailing her is Rep. Tom Suozzi with 22% and NYC Public Advocate Jumaane Williams with 19%.

Hochul’s bid to serve a full term in Albany is also looking bright beyond the primary; 55% of New Yorkers approve of her job performance, compared to 40% who disapprove.

  1. A Democrat from upstate, and who is not a WOKE nut, will be almost impossible for any Republican to beat. Their best chance would have been to run against a fanatical left wing nut from Manhattan or Brooklyn who doesn’t know the difference between Buffalo and a cow.
