Daily Top Ten — Andrew Cuomo’s Hurricane Sandy performance


NY Governor Andrew Cuomo was ground zero in the wake of Hurricane Sandy this week.
Let’s see how he did:

(TrendPo Rank)

(TrendPo Raw)

Cuomo shot up in the TrendPo ranks to number 5 overall, his highest buzz mark ever.

In terms of news coverage, as you can imagine, he got a lot of it.


(National News)

(Beltway News)

Social Presence as well:

(Facebook Gap)

(Twitter Gap)

Mr. Cuomo has been given high marks on his handling of Hurricane Sandy, and it remains to be seen how New York will recover from the devastating impact of the superstorm. Cuomo usually trends in the mid 100s in terms of TrendPo Rank (you can see that from the first chart), but sometimes events can propel politician figures into another realm of political clout, i.e. Rudy Guiliani post Sept. 11th. If Governor Cuomo does have national political aspirations in 2016, then the next few weeks will be a good opportunity for the rest of the nation to get to know him.
