The big news for national Democrats in the new Marist University poll of New York voters is the Senate trial heat.

If the 2010 election for U.S. Senate in New York State were held today, whom would you support?

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) – 49 percent

Rep. Peter King (R) – 24 percent

undecided – 27 percent

Whether King runs for Senate is a question of how bored he is with being a member of the minority party in the House, but it’s clear that his chances as a serious candidate for this seat crumbled when Caroline Kennedy did not get appointed.

The big local news, I guess, is that Gov. David Paterson (D) is behind New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg (I) and tied with former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) in the polls, but I don’t make much of that. Bloomberg is running for re-election, and Giuliani is a lazy campaigner who’s probably talking up a governor run to revive his image, not to actually go for it. This is a guy who lost four primaries (well, two primaries and two caucuses) to Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas).
