Cuomo ahead in yet another poll for NYC mayor’s race in 2025 – this time, without Adams in the picture

Yet another poll on the New York mayoral race less than two years from now puts former Governor Andrew Cuomo at the head of the pack.

The Slingshot Strategies poll, released Saturday, makes the former governor — who resigned in August 2021 over a sexual harassment scandal — the Democratic frontrunner in the 2025 mayoral election should the incumbent mayor, Eric Adams, not be in the race.

The same poll also found that a majority of respondents think Adams should resign if he is indicted, though at present he has not been said to be under any criminal investigation. Adams, however, has been linked to a former campaign aide whose Brooklyn home was raided in November over questionable activities involving Turkish developers; the probe also resulted in the mayor having his phones seized by the FBI.
