The polls that I run on my blog are just for fun and it's interesting to look at the results and see what people who read this blog are thinking. The last few polls have dealt with political match-ups of the 2008 election and I must say they're rather interesting.
The poll for County Executive showed that Kevin Cahill would have no trouble in winning the Democratic nomination for County Executive, winning with more than 55% in a math up with two likely contenders for the post Sue Zimet and Mike Hein, the only announced candidate for the post.
The Poll for Comptroller seems to favor Bill Berardi, a Kingston CPA, with strong ties to the community and a would be political new comer. Rich Parete also looks strong, polling a very close second. The other would be contenders Jim Sottile and Hector Rodriguez are barley in the double digits.
The race for Assembly assuming that Kevin Cahill were to run for County Executive, are probably the most interesting. With Kingston's well seasoned Alderman from the Seventh Ward, Bill Reynolds, and Brian Cahill, a county legislator and brother of Kevin Cahill, in a dead heat. That really could be an interesting race.... Reynolds has the experience and Cahill has the name, it would not be the first time voters elected an outgoing Assemblyman's relative to take his/her spot. One thing that is worth pointing out is that the front runners of the Assembly poll, Reynolds and Cahill, will both be the 08 majority leaders of the respective bodies that they represent.
Again, the polls are just for fun and there may be candidates that are not mentioned in the current polls, that would blow the current front runners of these fantasy match-ups to shreds. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
