Governor Cuomo holds commanding lead in latest poll

Posted July 21st, 2014 @ 10:32am by 810 & 103.1 WGY

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo holds an enormous 37-point lead over Republican challenger Rob Astorino in his re-election campaign. 

That's according to a new Siena College poll that shows the Democratic governor leading the Westchester County Executive 60 percent to 23 percent. 

The survey also found that six-in-ten voters think Cuomo's made New York a better place to live over the last four years. 

Siena pollsters say Astorino's major hurdle is that with just 15 weeks to go before election day, most voters don't know who he is and those who do are divided on whether they like him.
