Since I commented on a poll that showed New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo's approval rating dropping to 54% recently, it's worth noting that the same pollster, Marist, now has him bouncing back to 61%.

Equally importantly, Marist is the latest pollster to show that despite Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy's good profile -- suburban officeholder, former Democrat -- he doesn't appear to have much of an opening against Cuomo in the governor's race.

In many states, being the top elected official in a county of 1.5 million people would make you one of the most promising statewide aspirants around. In New York, that leaves Levy unknown to a large majority of his state's residents.
