When asked on November 22, 2013, whether he would consider a 2016 presidential bid, Cuomo stated, "Hillary Clinton is ‘apparently’ running for president of the United States, and I should also say Chris Christie is ‘apparently’ running for president of the United States. I – very apparently – am not." He would likely have to compete in the primary against Hillary Clinton, whose husband Cuomo served as a cabinet member to.[1] There have been 17 presidents who previously served as governors.[2]

Public opinion polls

  • A Siena Research Institute poll conducted in November 2013, showed Cuomo losing to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in a hypothetical 2016 head-to-head match-up.[1]
