Is Paterson Done?

Well, it might be comforting for NY Governor David Paterson to consider that he isn't as unpopular as Dick Cheney. A new poll shows Paterson trailing State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo 61 to 18 in a hypothetical matchup. 60 percent of New Yorkers disapprove of the job Paterson is doing, and a majority also believe he should go ahead and announce he will not be running for a full term in 2010. Rudy Giuliani, meanwhile, tops Paterson 53-32 in a general election matchup, while Cuomo beats Giuliani 53 to 36.
