Gubernatorial beer poll results

gubernatorial beer poll results

Poor Rick Lazio -- his pint looks like a shot glass.

Yesterday Jeff suggested that we poll people on which of the major gubernatorial candidates they would most like to have a beer with. The utterly unscientific results are above (as of about 4:30 pm Thursday). More than 200 people voted.

It looks like a tight race to the bar. And you never know what's going to happen in a race that close. (Will one of the candidates buy? Come on, Carl! You're worth $150 million!)

This could be (probably is) coincidental, but the beer poll results actually match up pretty well with this week's Q Poll that showed Paladino trailing Cuomo, 49-43.

Earlier on AOA:
+ Siena poll: Cuomo still has a big lead
+ Cuomo vs. Paladino -- stop the landslide?

Fine print: This is a completely unscientific poll. Results have been rounded. Margin of error? Depends on how much you drink.

Comments

I would like to have a beer with Cuomo but only from a Working Families Party cup. Vote your values. Vote Row E.

Isn't Lazio on the Temperance line? His supporters are hypocrites.

I think we know the percentage of AOA readers who are state employees...
