Poll: Majority of Democrats Want to Replace Biden With Andrew Cuomo

Poll: Majority of Democrats Want to Replace Biden With Andrew Cuomo

“56 percent of Democrats prefer Cuomo, with 44 percent wanting to stick with presumptive nominee Biden”

After seeing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on television dealing with the Coronavirus crisis in his state, some Democrats are having second thoughts about presumptive nominee Joe Biden.

A recent poll even found that a significant number of Democrats would like to drop Biden and run Cuomo.

Steven Nelson reports at the New York Post:

Democrats want to drop Joe Biden for Andrew Cuomo, poll finds

A majority of Democrats want to nominate New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for president instead of Joe Biden, according to poll results shared exclusively with The Post.

The national poll found 56 percent of Democrats prefer Cuomo, with 44 percent wanting to stick with presumptive nominee Biden — a 12-point margin well outside the 4.8 percent margin of error for the Democratic sample.

Hispanic voters, young people, women and self-identified liberals are most likely to favor dumping the former vice president for Cuomo.

The poll, conducted April 3-6, was commissioned by the conservative pro-market Club for Growth, which generally supports Republican candidates.

Making this switch would be a nightmare for the DNC, considering that we’re already past Super Tuesday. Still, if they really wanted to do it, you know they’d find a way.

William Davis of the Daily Caller has a quote that explains why this is happening:

Poll Finds Democrats Want To Ditch Joe Biden For Andrew Cuomo

Most Democrats want to nominate New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for president over presumptive nominee Joe Biden, a new poll finds…

“With every major news event, Democrats realize more and more how bad of a candidate Joe Biden is, and Democrats now preferring Cuomo is just another example,” Club for Growth vice president of communications Joe Kildea told The Post.

This is horrible for Biden. Not because it could happen but because it shows there is a real lack of confidence in his candidacy among Democratic voters.

As for whether or not this could actually happen, Byron York of the Washington Examiner says no way:

The #PresidentCuomo fantasy

How nervous are some Democrats about Joe Biden’s chances against President Trump this November? Nervous enough to entertain the notion that another Democrat, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, might swoop in and save the day.

Cuomo, who has been governor for nearly a decade and has one of the most famous names in Democratic politics, found new prominence when his state became the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis in the United States. In February and March, some New York officials urged the public to maintain regular activities even as the virus took hold in the state, leading to the worst outbreak in the country. Now, with New York in crisis, the governor holds daily briefings that some politicos see as an effective counterpoint to Trump’s White House updates.

It did not take long for the hashtag #PresidentCuomo to appear on Twitter. And from there came the dream that perhaps Cuomo might somehow become the Democratic standard-bearer…

At this point, does someone — Party elders? The chairman of the Democratic National Committee? — tell the 10,118,114 people who voted for Biden: “Never mind. Governor Cuomo will be your candidate now.” Or does someone tell the 7,665,794 who voted for Sanders: “Sorry, Biden won’t be the candidate, but neither will the second-place finisher.”

It’s astounding that Democrats began their primary with over 20 candidates and they’re still looking for someone they believe can deliver a victory in November.

DEMS jump out of the frying pan into the fire of He’ll.

I was thinking about this last night in relation to Oregon, where several years ago there was some corruption stink on the Dem Governor just before the election. Everyone downplayed it until after the election, but then ramped it up and he was out. The secretary of state became the new, and still current Gov, but she is someone who would never get elected out of the blue. So while people here are focused on who Biden’s VP candidate will be, I am looking deeper on the bench at Pelosi.

    You think stroke addled Pelosi wants to stick herself in ?

    Imo, Pelosi who is soon to start her 9th decade of life has had many mini strokes.

    She IS NOT healthy IMO.

    Remember, if they try to go that way:
    1) They have to hold the House, or else the Speaker will be some evil Republican.
    2) They can select anyone to be Speaker when the new Congress starts in January — ahead of the Inauguration. There isn’t even anything requiring the Speaker to be a member of the House.

    Yeah, but she has to be able to win. In Oregon any candidate with (D) after her name is going to cakewalk to victory over any candidate with an (R) after their name. Nationally, Trump has no such problem.

People see Andrew Cuomo as more competent. I get it,,but what about the whole D primary process? They want to just dump that and kinda pick someone who never even ran?

This was the question: “Based on what you know today, do you agree or disagree that Democrats should nominate Governor Andrew Cuomo for president instead of Joe Biden?”

Nothing surprises me when it comes to those Democrats.

Cuomo is even less liked than slow corrupt halfwit Joe Biden.

The commie party simply doesn’t have anyone that can bridge the gap between the whacko’s and the moderate* commies.

*moderate for the commie party

When Andrew renamed the treasured and much beloved Tappan Zee Bridge for his father, even his supporters turned on him. Between that heresy and his gun-grabbing, if Cuomo became the nominee, I doubt he’d carry his home state.

They are dumping on Biden because they are finally waking up to the fact that he is not mentally capable of tying his own shoes, let alone holding the office of President.

The Californication Governor is now gaining a lot of traction to replace Biden, Cuomo was last week.

Overheard at the D Brain* Trust, “Hey, I got an idea. Lets run a really crude, abrasive, and generally unlikeable Northeast liberal!”

*Actually having a brain, or any intent to honor the Article VI oath, or admiration for a republican form of government entirely optional

There really isn’t anyone the Democrats want to put in front of the American people wearing a mask.

Well, maybe Northam…

How many want Mrs. Clinton to run for president? Did they ask that in the pole?

Andrew “All your ventilators are belong to us” Cuomo?

By every metric New York has done the worst and is experiencing the worst of this virus largely due to horrible decisions made early on…and yet the media swoon ….wow sure is swell to be a Democrat

Conservative0317 | April 11, 2020 at 2:32 pm

Many have said it before, but it makes sense the Plan would be to run Biden as the candidate, with the ACTUAL desired candidate running as his VP. Then some time after Biden won and was inaugurated Biden would be found incompetent and the VP would take over. Can you imaging the new President being Warren, Sanders or Clinton??? Yikes!

DNC is about to pull the biggest political bait and switch ever.
And it’s not good.
At all.
I think Trump will win, but it’s scary to see that so many Americans accept such open corruption. I am not naive, there will always be corruption, but they are not even trying to hide it.

    obama left the democrats with nothing. 8 years of radical demagoguery, obamacare, and anti-Americanism in general obliterated any bench they might have had. There are zero ‘moderate’ democrats left because of obama. BiteMe is the only ‘nationally electable’ democrat left.

    They can play musical dumbasses all they want. But they have nothing but massive vote fraud to fall back on.

    “but it’s scary to see that so many Americans accept such open corruption.”

    That is making the increasingly questionable assumption that we really are one nation still and all of us can be lumped together as “Americans”. Look at the underlying cultural, political, and economic tenets in those of the Left, and that assumption gets shakier with every one of their acts.

Don’t forget about Newsome.
I am betting there will be the brokered convention, and it will come down to the two of them.

If there is a brokered convention and VP Biden is replaced with anyone that’s not named Bernie Sanders there will be so much wailing and gnashing of teeth by the “Bernie Bros” that we’ll all need to wear ear protection for months!

    Miles in reply to WillS68. | April 11, 2020 at 5:12 pm

    And if that happens, the vast majority of those Bernie Bros will not simply hold their noses and vote for the dem candidiate.

Stop, people. That Dago guinea with the trustworthy face might play in NY/NJ, but flyover country is not going to vote for Johnny Sack.

Not to mention that half-a-women went into the arena and fought for the nomination. Now drop Biden like a rock from a cliff and insert…..another white, heterosexual, wealthy male? OK. I guess that shows who Democrats are.
