A poll conducted fifteen weeks before Election Day shows incumbent New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is maintaining a wide lead over his nearest challenger.
According to a recent Siena Research Institute poll, Cuomo is 37 points ahead of Republican challenger Rob Astorino. The Democrat also has a high favorability rating, while 60 percent of voters have never heard of Astorino.
Candidates’ financial statements were released earlier this month, and Cuomo reported having $35 million, compared to Astorino’s $2.4 million in the bank.
