Cuomo leads Nixon by 31 points in Siena poll

Gov. Andrew Cuomo led Democratic primary challenger Cynthia Nixon by 60 percent to 29 percent in a Siena College poll of likely Democratic primary voters released Tuesday.

In a survey of 630 voters taken last week, 67 percent had a favorable view of the Democratic governor, who is running for a third term, and 29 percent had an unfavorable view. Nixon, the actress and activist competing with Cuomo in a Sept. 13 primary, had a 43 percent to 30 percent favorability split, with 27 percent having no opinion about her.

The same poll found New York City Public Advocate Letitia James leading the four-way Democratic primary race for attorney general with 25 percent, followed by Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney at 16 percent; Zephyr Teachout at 13 percent; and Leecia Eve at 4 percent.
