Both Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Republican former Gov. George Pataki do not excite New York voters when it comes to the idea of either man running for president, a Quinnipiac University poll this morning found.

Cuomo is highly unlikely to mount a bid for the White House and has said he would support former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Pataki, meanwhile, has made appearances in early primary and caucus states as he considers forming a presidential campaign.

Clinton, a former U.S. senator, would trounce Pataki in a head-to-head matchup in New York, 55 percent to 34 percent.

Fifty-nine percent of New York voters overall of a favorable view of Clinton, compared to 36 percent who do not. Clinton in December had a favorable-unfavorable split of 64 percent to 30 percent.

President Obama is viewed favorably by 51 percent of voters polled, the survey found.

Among Republican voters, Pataki ties radio host Ben Carson at 6 percent, with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker each earning 13 percent of the vote. Chris Christie, the governor of neighboring New Jersey, earns 12 percent of the vote.

New York Democrats overwhelming would back Clinton for the nomination, receiving 51 percent of their support.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is the closest within striking distance of Clinton, receiving 11 percent of the vote among Democrats surveyed.

The poll of 1,228 registered voters was conducted from March 11 through March 16. It has a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points.
