Chuck Schumer in Trouble?

I never thought it would be possible, but there’s a glimmer of hope that Chuck Schumer might be ousted in 2004. A new Marist poll has him trailing Giuliani, with only 37% to Rudy’s 58% (and only 5% undecided). But would Rudy run? Or would he rather stand again for mayor of New York in 2005?

In any event, Schumer’s favorable rating is a rather anemic 53% — about where Hillary’s is, I believe. This suggests that it’s not just the Rudy Factor. How would Pataki fare against Schumer?

It may be too early to tell, but New York seems promising as a potential GOP pickup.
