NY-Sen: Cuomo Or Kennedy Vs. King

PPP releases more of it's New York Senate poll, and the numbers are a wake-up call:
The latest Public Policy Polling survey finds that both Andrew Cuomo and Caroline Kennedy would both lead possible U.S. Senate faceoffs in 2010 against Rep. Peter King (R-NY), although there's a wide disparity in the margins.
Cuomo would beat King, 48% to 29%, while Kennedy would barely edge him, 46% to 44%.
Of course, this assumes King would be the Republican nominee and not a stronger candidate such as Rudy Giuliani.
But no fear, Kennedy backers - Maureen Dowd provided an endorsement in her column today. Dowd's response to Kennedy-doubters:
People are suddenly awfully choosy about who gets to go to the former home of Jesse Helms, Strom Thurmond and Robert Torricelli.
It's an argument I hadn't considered: Kennedy isn't racist or corrupt. Point Kennedy.
