it's never too early to talk about 2016

New York Voters Pick Chris Christie Over Andrew Cuomo for 2016

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (L) and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo walk after seeing Hector Garcia (2R) as he watches over his wife Carmen as she hugs the inscribed name of her daughter Marilyn who was killed in the north tower of the WTC during observances for the eleventh anniversary of the terrorist attacks on lower Manhattan at the World Trade Center site September 11, 2012 in New York City. The nation is commemorating the eleventh anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks which resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people after two hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia and one crash landed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

While Chris Christie would lose handily to Hillary Clinton in New York, he would defeat the state’s current governor, Andrew Cuomo, 47-42 if the two were to face each other in 2016, according to a new Siena poll. Which is about as demoralizing as your kids saying they’d rather play catch with the next-door neighbor.

 The poll also gives Cuomo his lowest approval rating of his entire term. The good news for Cuomo? He’s still on track to glide to reelection in 2014 over a field of mediocre GOP candidates, and Clinton will probably spare him the opportunity to be schooled by a Republican in his home state in 2016.
