Cynthia Nixon running for governor of NY

In a campaign video, the public education advocate said, "We want our government to work again".

Three-quarters of those polled said they have no opinion or don't know enough about Nixon or Sen.

Nixon's entry sets up a September primary for the Democratic party's nomination. She said that included "taking the leap to run for office ourselves". "I think there are a lot of people who would like me to run for a variety of reasons". "New York is my home".

The Siena College poll found that registered voters in NY state prefer Cuomo over Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro by 57 percent to 29 percent.

But Cattrall seems to have only warm feelings for Nixon, and thanked her publicly for expressing condolences over her brother's recent death.

A hypothetical poll released Monday prior to Nixon's announcement shows that she's a clear underdog against Cuomo, 66 to 19 percent, according to a report by the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle. "But for the past eight years, they're all choices that have been made by our governor, Andrew Cuomo".

Cynthia Nixon extolled her NY roots in a video announcing her candidacy for governor. "Women have to lead and speak up", she said.

Of the four actresses who starred on the program, it is Nixon who has enjoyed the most critical success ever since the program went off the air. John DeFrancisco, of Syracuse, 57 percent to 28 percent, according to the poll.

"Cuomo has the support of a small plurality of independents against either and strong support from downstate voters, while upstate voters are closely divided between Cuomo and either Republican".

Cuomo's closeness with Percoco has put a dent in his favorability ratings.

More recently Cuomo has said he's not "nervous" about whoever runs against him.

In 2014, the party was split between Cuomo and Teachout, but ultimately choose Cuomo after he vowed to forward progressive policies in his second term - including helping Democrats win control of the state Senate, which hasn't happened.

She is aligned with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio - a Democrat to the left of Mr Cuomo. She also accuses Cuomo of allowing NY to become "the most unequal state in the country" when it comes to income.
