Closing The Gap. An Emerson College poll finds Cuomo catching up on Hochul in a Democratic Primary matchup. The former Governor comes in at 33 percent versus 37 percent for the incumbent. The startling results show that Cuomo’s rehabilitation campaign is gaining traction. In recent weeks he has re-emerged from the shadows. High profile dinners, the commercial blitz, and last Sundays address at a Brooklyn church are part of his well orchestrated comeback strategy. With a vast 16 Million Dollar war chest he has the means to mount a primary challenge. What seemed unthinkable months ago is picking up steam. Closing The Gap. We clearly have not heard the last of Cuomo and his political machine !!
