Your choices are:

1) Cuomo, who has more than likely sexually assaulted multiple women and may do so again.

2) A generic Republican, who would make policies and appoint judges who would roll back rights for all women in the state, along with rights for minorities and LGBTQ+ people too.

3) There is no choice 3.

They probably polled a lot of New York City residents. You have to appeal to them to win in that state. It is bad enough all the money in that state goes there.

Its almost as if that's where the majority of the residents of that state live.

I think you mean all the money the state has is generated from there.

And theres not one farker in NY who could run against this moron?
 
2021-06-09 12:55:42 PM  
Well yeah, the Republicans are SH*T.

I'm a New Yorker... I think Cuomo is a scumbag and I wish that he wasn't governor...

... I'll still vote for him over any member of the GQP.

If the choice is between 'competent yet evil' and 'incompetent AND evil' then it's pretty obvious what to do.
 
2021-06-09 12:59:48 PM  
On his worst possible day, Cuomo doesn't want to overthrow the US government.

That is a substantial difference.

But his party needs to primary him, probably.
 
2021-06-09 1:01:30 PM  
This is why we need a jungle primary and ranked-choice voting for everything. The odds that whatever actual republican they dig up is actually better than generic republican are are slim. So now we are stuck with 4 more years of this dipshiat because the system is completely broken.

I'm still hoping he gets primaried & loses, but the odds of a Republican winning are roughly 0.
 
2021-06-09 1:03:31 PM  
Here's the deal. If you knew that, no matter how much you wanted to avoid it, that you were going to get someone's shiat on your hand, would you want it to be your shiat, or someone else's shiat?

Welcome to New York politics.

Have you seen the last few Republicans that ran for Governor of New York?
 
2021-06-09 1:06:30 PM  
Cuomo could kill 5000 seniors in a nursing home and Democrats would still vote for him.

... and who's probably also sexually assaulted multiple women ...

It's hilarious watching Trumpanzees buy into the whole "rural people's money gets spent by them dadburn city folk" fantasy.

There aren't likely to be NY equivalents of him.
Surviving as an active in office Republican against Trump in a blue state, he's not a genocidal maniac.

Generic Republicans are less common than high definition video footage of Bigfoot.

Pretty much my exact sentiments.

I agree with that reasoning.  The GQP has made it crystal clear that they prefer autocracy to democracy.  They are 100% nope, nope, NOPE!

I'm reminded of a past Louisiana gubernatorial race- Edwards vs. Duke.  There were bumper stickers that read "Vote for the crook! It's important!"  Cuomo vs any GPQ would be "vote for the perv over the facist".

But maybe you NY Dems could primary him?

Run against Cuomo. Your platform should be : im like him but im not a sexual predator. Vote for me.

Rightly, voters agree that choosing a scummy, possibly-criminal career politician is leagues better than whatever dumpster fire the GOP puts forward

Wait - how is this news?

New York City pays in more than it gets back, both in absolute and per capita terms. I don't know why people think Utica is subsidizing the financial and cultural capital of the nation.

So apparently, TFA author does not realize that "New Yorker" refers to the residents of the greater New York City metropolis, while New Yorkians is the general term for other residents of the state of New York.

Wait, you're telling me that most of NY State is Derperville?     At least we have 60% of our liberal population living in cities here in WA.

Make no mistake - any Republican running for governor is going to have ONE mandate: to pardon Donald Trump for his state crimes.

That's what the price of sticking it to the libs is going to be.

Well, that's in NYC proper, but last I checked you get to a majority if you throw in Long Island and Westchester.

I don't feel like being shot by Cuomo in the middle of Broadway only to have Democrats still vote for him because he's better than the Republican.
 
2021-06-09 2:20:03 PM  
For all the talk of NYC though, my gut instinct is that that's where most of the anti-Cuomo primary voters are coming from.
 
2021-06-09 2:21:29 PM  
After Cuomo murdered all the elderly and ran all the smart people off with crazy high taxes, the only people left are the ignorant shmucks who like that kind of thing.

Stupidest thing I'll read all day.  First, 10 million people are there, second, NYC is what drives the NY STate economy, Brewster and Seychelles aren't filling the coffers, you dumbass.  Without NYC NYS would be Kentucky, only stupider based on your comment.

Observing some of the utter insanity coming out of other states with GOP legislatures really gives people a sense of scope. Yes Cuomo is a slimey guy who does slimey things, power corrupts. Am I willing to take a chance on a republican who will almost guaranteed try the same shiat going on in Texas, Ohio and Florida?

The saying goes, "Once you go republican, you never go back - because they gerrymandered the shiat out of your state when they had power and refuse to give it up".

The important number is that 70% of tax revenue in the state is collected in Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester and NYC. If you throw in buffalo, the capital region and Rochester and Syracuse its like 90%+

Good point. Didn't realize how close his margin of victory was there.
