New Polls: Pataki Numbers Up, Spitzer Down Slightly

Newsday reports that Pataki's favorability rating is 52%. That represents his highest rating in months and a huge improvement from the pathetic low of 23% in May.

This just after Pataki's trip to Iowa for the Governor's Association meeting that also included Pataki mulling the possibility of a Presidential run in 2008.

In a head to head matchup Spitzer continues to lead but the gap closed 1 point from the last poll:
Spitzer: 49%
Pataki: 37%
Pataki's 37 percent is the same as he polled last month while Spitzer fell 1 point from 50%.

The article also notes another possible opponent for Spitzer:
There has been some talk in GOP circles of the party turning to Rochester billionaire B. Thomas Golisano as a candidate for governor if Pataki doesn't seek a fourth term. The new poll found Spitzer beating Golisano, 52 percent to 26 percent, if the businessman were on the GOP line.
Golisano (a new addition to the Spitzer's Competition sidebar) has unsuccessfully run for governor three times as the Independence Party candidate and as the billionaire owner of the Buffalo Sabres he would be able to spend large amounts of his own money on the race. Newsday notes that in 2002 Golisano "spent $75 million of his own money... and finished a distant third with just 14 percent of the vote."

Golisano's a tough contender and a master of making himself up. If he gets the Republican nod, expect fireworks. This'll be an interesting race.
