WOODBURY - A News 12 Long Island/Hofstra University poll shows that Long Islanders are divided about who they want to win the presidency.

A total of 40 percent said they want Hillary Clinton to be the next president, while 40 percent said they supported Donald Trump.

Six percent said they want another candidate, and six percent aren't voting at all. Eight percent of those polled said they were undecided.

Political analyst Michael Dawidziak said the result are not surprising.

"That's consistent. That's what the polls have been on Long Island almost from the time when these two candidates were chosen," said Dawidziak.

The poll also showed that 60 percent of Long Islanders are dissatisfied with the candidates.
