Dicker: Winners and Losers in NY Politics are Stark in Contrast This Year

  Veteran political scribe Fred Dicker had an easy time picking winners and losers this year.
   Sheldon Silver and Dean Skelos lead the losers and Governor Cuomo had a rough year too, losing popularity and getting some of the splatter of scandal on hiim as well.
    US Attorney Preet Bharara is a winner for shaking up NY politics and positioning himself for a run at something.  Comptroller Tom DiNapoli is now the state's most popular Democrat and may run in 2018. He would be a strong candidate.
    Mayor DiBlasio is deemed a loser based on the belief he is in over his head, and Donald Trump is a winner for getting as far as he has.
