Cuomo Launches War on Third Party

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) "is responding to a rebellion from the state's progressive third party by attempting to push other Democrats away from the Working Families Party," BuzzFeed reports.

"Cuomo's move is an escalation that raises the stakes on both sides of the ideologically charged battle, one that has brought to the fore the New York governor's growing rift with the state's left. Cuomo political aide and longtime enforcer Joe Percoco has, the sources said, made the request, which is aimed at threatening the party's ability to get the 50,000 votes for governor in November's election required for a permanent slot on the statewide ballot."

Meanwhile, Harry Enten looks at how polling in three-way races is very unpredictable.
