Lazio: We'll Get Cuomo Below 50 Percent

Wednesday, August 04, 2010 - 09:59 AM


Conservative radio show host Laura Ingraham interviewed Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio just now and asked him if he could win his race.

As Ingraham put it, “How can a Republican like you ever hope to win the gubernatorial race?”

Lazio answered: “This is a year when nobody wants to vote for an incumbent.”

Andrew Cuomo is not the incumbent governor. But he is the sitting attorney general, and he’s had a long history working in Albany and in New York politics.

Just before ending the interview, Ingraham pressed Lazio on his electoral prospects, asking, “Why are you polling so low?”

She referred to a recent Rasmussen poll showing Lazio at 27 percent against Cuomo, who was hovering around 58 percent. The other GOP candidate, Carl Paladino, was getting 29 percent of the vote against Cuomo.

Lazio, trying to find the silver lining in the situation, argued that Cuomo’s numbers were low for a sitting official. He added, “We’re going to get him down below 50 percent.”

This poll is not telling the truth, American Voters do not feel this way about Andrew Cuomo, these Polls are not accurate and amongst American Voters none of them favor the Democrat, not even the Democrats favor Andrew Cuomo. He is trying to fix the Election by making the Voters think he is in the lead, but he's not.

The Mosque is a serious matter, and it needs to be stopped. These are not Americans these are Foreigners and they are the biggest threat to our country, Muslims are terrorist. I learned about it from the FBI and the News Media, you should watch the news. They're the FBI's most wanted.

Andrew Cuomo will do and say anything for money, he himself is a threat to America.
