"The polls across the board are just not capturing the progressive moment we're in", she said, adding that hundreds of thousands of new Democrats have registered to vote across New York State following Donald Trump's election.
Meanwhile, the New York Post reported on Tuesday that a Cuomo campaign official had pitched a story to a reporter at the newspaper about Nixon's opposition to Israeli settlements and her support of the BDS movement against Israel a day before the mailer was delivered.
Nixon has never officially supported BDS, but in 2010 signed a letter with a 150 other U.S. actors, directors and artists voicing her support for Israeli actors who refused to perform in the Jewish state's controversial settlements in the West Bank. However, several outsider candidates challenging incumbent governors have fallen short during the nominating season. Recent polls show Cuomo with a 40-point lead, but Nixon says her lack of experience could be her edge. "Don't knock it until you've tried it", Nixon said with a smile as members of the news media asked her about her curious take on the New York City classic.
Nixon's campaign slammed what they called the governor's "secret rally", saying in part, "The blowback from Cuomo's bridge and mailer scandals have forced him into hiding, while Cynthia is gaining momentum and talking to excited voters at five different campaign stops". Cuomo has said she is inexperienced and naive.
On Sunday, Cynthia Nixon became the latest aspiring office-holder to briefly lose her mind while attempting to eat on the campaign trail, when she ordered-in public and on purpose-a cinnamon raisin bagel with lox from Zabar's on the Upper West Side. The New York Attorney General's office found in 2016 that the city's board of elections had illegally taken about 200,000 names in 2014 and 2015 from voter rolls.

Trump's latest boast about the economy isn't even close to accurate
Hassett responded to this error by quipping, "I'm not the chairman of the Council of Twitter Advisers". And indeed, most of Hassett's comments were flattering as he praised Trump's record on the economy.
Should Cuomo win, he would be heavily favored against Republican Marc Molinaro, the Dutchess County executive, in the November general election. Cuomo, seeking his third term, spent about $18 million in his campaign to fend off Nixon, who ran to his left on issues like voting reforms and fixing New York City's subways. He was endorsed by establishment figures in the Democratic Party, including former Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as most of the state's labor unions.
Nixon, 52, has touted herself as a democratic socialist and a champion of causes such as abortion access, better funding for schools and equal rights for gay and lesbian people.
"If you hock the house on Cynthia Nixon you will be homeless on Friday", Mr. Sheinkopf said.
Other important races are on the ballot, including the candidates for NY attorney general.
