According to Paul Bedard in the Washington Examiner:
In their daily virus TV briefing showdowns, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is beating President Trump and setting himself up as a potential surprise challenger in the muddled 2020 presidential race.
The latest evidence comes in a Zogby Analytics survey provided to Secrets that not only has Cuomo as the politician the nation most admires in the fight on the coronavirus, but also one in which every voter subgroup likes him.
By comparison, while half the country approves of the president’s job, Trump is underwater with groups he needs some support from to win a second term — independents and women.
In his analysis, pollster Jonathan Zogby said, “When it came to politicians, Gov. Andrew Cuomo was perceived most favorably at handling the pandemic. His daily news conferences have become the response to President Trump’s briefings, and the two have gone toe to toe on a number of occasions. Cuomo is currently winning the confrontations, and he has broad appeal — majorities of Republicans and conservatives, nationwide, rate his response to the crisis positively.”
