Poll: Governor Cuomo Leads Marc Molinaro By 13

With just a day to go until the midterm elections, a new poll shows Governor Andrew Cuomo leading Republican Marc Molinaro by 13 points.

The Siena College survey gives Cuomo a 49 to 36 percent advantage among likely voters in the state.  That’s down from the 50 to 28 percent lead that the governor had in October.

“Days before voters go to the polls, Molinaro has narrowed Cuomo’s lead. Republicans are ‘coming home’ to support their nominee much stronger than last month, although Cuomo continues to do better with Democrats than Molinaro does with Republicans,” Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said.

One of the other factors in Molinaro closing the gap is Independent voters.  A majority now support the Republican, after Cuomo had a 10 point lead among Independents last month.  Women favor the governor by a two-to-one margin, but men are leaning towards Molinaro.

Elsewhere in New York, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand leads Republican Chele Chiavacci Farley 58 to 35 percent.  State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli has a 62 to 25 percent advantage over Republican Jonathan Trichter in his re-election bid.  In the Attorney General race, Democrat Letitia James holds a 49 to 37 percent edge over Keith Wofford.

The poll also found that by a 56 to 41 percent margin, New York State voters want to see Democrats control the House.
