Pataki Seems to be Gillibrand's Last Threat

A new Quinnipiac poll in New York finds that if former Gov. George Pataki (R) jumps into the U.S. Senate race, he would beat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D), 45% to 40%.

Gillibrand beats the only announced Republican candidate, Bruce Blakeman (R), 47% to 25%.

Notes pollster Maurice Carroll: "The threat to Gillibrand always has been from the Democratic left, but that seems to have evaporated. On the Republican side, former Gov. George Pataki could give her a run. IF he decides to run, that is."

Gillibrand now has a 47% job approval rating -- her highest score since she was appopinted Senator last year. More: Pataki Seems to be Gillibrand's Last Threat
