WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo still enjoys a massive 36-point lead over Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino in the gubernatorial race, according to a recent Siena College poll.
Cuomo holds a 57 to 21 percent lead over Astorino. Even more troubling for the Westchester Republican is that more than two-thirds of New Yorkers don't know who Astorino is, the Siena College poll said.
“There are five months till Election Day. No race is over in June," Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said in a statement. "This is a snapshot of all registered voters, not just those likely to vote in November. All true. But true too are two other facts: Astorino has a huge gap to close, and it’s hard to beat a popular incumbent when you face a two-to-one party disadvantage and you are unknown to two-thirds of voters, including 70 percent of your own party.”
Only 13 to 21 percent of voters say they align with the Republican candidate on issues like improving education, medicinal marijuana or the SAFE Act.
