Who Is Andrew Cuomo?

Democrat IconAndrew Mark Cuomo, older brother of disgraced CNN hack Fredo Cuomo, is the 56th governor of New York. Born in 1957, Cuomo has been in politics for most of his adult life, getting his start in the late 1980s working for his father Mario Cuomo, himself a three-term Governor of NY. If elected President in November, Cuomo would take office in January 2021 at the age of 63.

Of Italian descent – and despite his clownish brother’s on-air cries comparing The Godfather character references to the “N word” – Cuomo is considered to be racially white. In the age of identity politics within the Democratic party, this could be a hindrance, although his ethnic background could be a boon in states with heavy Italian or Hispanic populations.

While Cuomo has not formally declared his Presidential candidacy, his name has been floated by the mainstream media, and the notion has picked up incredible steam. Per the odds boards, the two-man race between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders is now Biden vs. Cuomo.

Why Is Andrew Cuomo Suddenly On The Presidential Odds Boards?

As we explain below, Andrew Cuomo has popped up on election betting sites as a credible DNC candidate practically overnight. This is due in part to the US coronavirus scare and his being the face of New York’s response.

However, the bigger reason is perhaps something a bit more sinister and conniving: Many people are starting to believe that the Democratic National Committee has no intention of letting Joe Biden be the nominee on the November ballot.

While Biden is well on his way to earn the Democratic Presidential nomination with a majority of national delegates, it is clear that he is not well and that his health is deteriorating by the week. There is doubt that Biden will be able to debate Trump in several months’ time, for example, and there is fear that his mental acuity, in particular, will decline further as the general election nears.

With that in mind, the strategy of the DNC could be as follows: Use Biden and his establishment credentials to prevent Bernie Sanders from winning the majority of delegates and the automatic Democratic nomination. Then, either have Biden pick a President-ready running mate, win the general election, and resign, or simply have Biden bow out after winning the delegates (but before the general election) for “health reasons.”

This latter move would allow the DNC to install whomever they wish via their controversial superdelegate system, and Andrew Cuomo seems like a solid, logical choice for the party under such circumstances. Hillary Clinton is also on the betting boards for this reason.

Andrew Cuomo Coronavirus Update 

The coronavirus sweeping the nation and causing half the country to go on lockdown has had tremendous impacts across the entire political betting landscape, and while Cuomo wasn’t considered a potential candidate until the last week in March 2020, the reason he’s on the boards at all is due to Biden’s current media blackout and virtual town hall gaffes. That, and the fact that the Wuhan coronavirus is hitting NYC the hardest, putting Cuomo front and center on the national news every night.

As stated above, it now seems clearer than ever to voters and bettors that Biden is a feeble old man who is probably losing his mind, and the COVID-19 crisis seems to have underscored that. The public may indeed favor a scenario where a younger candidate takes the establishment reins going into November – especially someone with experience leading a large city through a trying ordeal like this one.

Can I Bet On Andrew Cuomo Now?

Yes, you can! Though Governor Cuomo has only been on the odds boards for a few days as of March 25, he’s already at the top of the list, just under Joe Biden.

Cuomo’s arrival is media-generated, as the potential candidate has not made anything official just yet, but consider the betting lines: Biden is sitting at -800 because he will easily win the Democrat delegate majority. But Cuomo is now second at +1200, despite having zero delegates. Bernie, who has nearly a thousand delegates of his own, is at +2500 odds.

Similarly, Cuomo is trending behind only Donald Trump and Biden per the 2020 Presidential Winner odds, sitting at +2000 compared to Bernie’s +4000. If you think the Cuomo hype is real, you should get your bets in now.

What The Current Political Betting Odds Tell Us About Cuomo’s Chance To Win In 2020

Basically, Andrew Cuomo has a pretty good chance to become the Democratic nominee for the 2020 general election, even though he hasn’t officially entered the race. The reasons for this are multifaceted, but they really come down to one overarching consideration, which is the health of presumed nominee Joe Biden.

What was once written off as a “conspiracy theory” is now being embraced by the mainstream, and bettors are wising up to the reality of the situation. Cuomo may not have the chops to dethrone President Trump in November, but he is absolutely a credible potential nominee, and his current odds are long enough that he could be a very smart bet.

Andrew Cuomo’s Chances To Win Based On Prediction Markets

Prediction markets like PredictIt don’t really have much data about Andrew Cuomo’s potential run in 2020. However, the limited numbers they do have put him about in line with the betting boards’ odds right now.

As for polling, Cuomo’s not doing so well, as his Governor approval rating dropped to its lowest level in eight years in February 2020. On the other hand, with the COVID-19 crisis spiking massively in New York, Cuomo is in the spotlight, though it’s too early to measure whether or not his leadership is being met with public approval.

Andrew Cuomo’s Political Policies

Andrew Cuomo has largely standard Democratic policies that run the mainstream gamut. He advocates for special LGBTQ laws, preaches endlessly about racial iniquity, is a disarmist who characterizes sporting rifles and basic pistols as “assault weapons,” and he generally stumps for DNC party initiatives like open borders, pro-choice laws, gun bans, universal health care, and so on.

While Cuomo is not outwardly a Bernie Sanders-style radical leftist, he does share many of the same views on rights limitations that the socialist Vermont Senator espouses.

Further, it is worth noting that Cuomo has been governor of NY since 2011. However, he did nothing about the controversial stop-and-frisk laws enacted by former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg, which could come back to bite him with the black vote should he make it onto the November ballot.

ExperienceExperience Icon

Andrew Cuomo’s experience in the political sphere started decades ago. The following is a list of all appointed and elected positions he has held as a career “public servant”:

  • 1982 – Campaign manager for father Mario Cuomo’s NY Governor run
  • 1982-1984 – Policy advisor under Gov. Mario Cuomo
  • 1984-1995 – New York assistant district attorney
  • 1990-1993 – Cahir of NYC Homeless Commission
  • 1993-1997 – Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development in Clinton administration
  • 1997-2001 – US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development
  • 2002 – Failed run for NY governor
  • 2007-2010 – 64th Attorney General of New York
  • 2011-present – 56th Governor of New York

Education

Education IconAndrew Cuomo graduated from St. Gerard Majella’s School (primary school) in 1971. In 1975, he graduated from Archbishop Molloy High School, and he went on to Fordham University. In 1979, he earned his BA from Fordham, and he got his JD from Albany Law School in 1982.

Civic Work

Cuomo doesn’t have much of a record for any civic work outside of the context of an acting politician, as he’s been in politics for his entire adult life. While he no doubt contributes to various charities and causes as a private citizen, these have never been highlighted or promoted in his political campaigns.

That said, as a community planner and governor, much of Cuomo’s focus has been on the slums of New York, and criminal justice reform and homelessness have been high on his list of interests publicly.

Andrew Cuomo’s Views On Gambling

Gambling IconAndrew Cuomo presided over 2013’s SB 5883 referendum, which authorized upstate NY casinos to offer sports betting. After the 2018 PASPA overturn, Cuomo oversaw the 2019 rollout of sports wagering at four brick-and-mortar casino venues in the state. However, Cuomo is currently opposed to online gambling and online sports betting, both of which are available – and extremely popular – in neighboring New Jersey.

Right now, Cuomo can be viewed as a gambling minimalist. He is not for the complete suspension of gambling in NY, though he is also not for making it more accessible to residents in general. Don’t expect any meaningful gambling expansion in the Empire State while Cuomo remains emperor.


How Much Can I Win If I Bet On Andrew Cuomo?

Right now, Gov. Cuomo is pulling odds of +1200 to win the DNC party ticket and +2000 to become the next President of the United States. If you want to wager on his Democratic nomination odds, a $100 wager would earn a payout of $1200 if he gets the nod.

Top 5 Reasons Governor Andrew Cuomo Has A Chance To Be The DNC Nominee

  1. Andrew Cuomo has a famous name in governmental circles and comes from a respected political family. As governor of “the most important” US state, Cuomo has national name recognition as well. Heck, he was even married to a Kennedy (until he cheated on her with a reality TV chef, which is a very Kennedy thing to do).
  2. Cuomo is a rank-and-file Democrat through and through. If the party has a platform, he’s standing on it. He would be extremely popular with establishment voters.
  3. Cuomo is of Italian and Sicilian descent. While that’s not valuable in race-pimping political circles, he is “ethnic” enough to shed any damaging vestiges of “toxic male whiteness” in the current Democrat PC climate. He’s not a minority and probably won’t claim to be one, but he should do well with the minority vote (albeit less so with African Americans than with Hispanics and other southeastern Europeans).
  4. Cuomo is bulletproof. Gov. Cuomo has been in politics so long that the scandals have really stacked up. From illegal surveillance scandals and the unlawful use of campaign donations to open hostility against the US Constitution and conservatives in general, the guy has major skeletons. Yet the masses continue to reward Cuomo. He isn’t the Teflon Don, but he does seem to have some kind of nonstick coating.
  5. Cuomo is “young.” With a Democratic field of nominees pushing 80 years old and the coronavirus going around targeting the elderly, Cuomo – at just 62 – is nearly a generation younger than front-runner Joe Biden and also-ran Bernie Sanders. While he’s no spring chicken, that’s a meaningful delta to voters who might be tired of geriatrics in the highest levels of national government.
