Cuomo leads Molinaro by 19 points in Siena poll

Gov. Andrew Cuomo leads Marc Molinaro, the Republican candidate for governor, by 19 percentage points in a Siena College poll released Wednesday, which shows the two-term Democrat dominating in New York City, ahead by a large margin in the suburbs, and trailing the Dutchess County executive among upstate voters.

Asked who they would vote for if the election were held today, the 745 likely voters Siena called last week picked Cuomo over Molinaro by 56 percent to 37 percent. The split in New York City’s suburbs – which includes Orange County – was 55-38 percent for Cuomo. Upstate, which includes Ulster and Sullivan counties, went 49-43 percent for Molinaro.

Cuomo led Cynthia Nixon, the actress and activist who’s challenging him in a Democratic primary, by 61-26 percent, a 35-point spread. Yet Nixon also led Molinaro, by 46-35 percent, in an election matchup between those two candidates.
