A Siena College poll released this week has the incumbent governor, Democrat Kathy Hochul, leading the Republican Lee Zeldin 54-37, with 7% of voters undecided, and 2% either voting for another candidate or not voting.
Hochul's apparent lead over Zeldin has grown by 3 points since a previous Siena poll in August.
In the suburbs, including Zeldin's Suffolk County, the poll finds the Congressman down 50-45. And among voters in New York City – Hochul is dominating by a whopping 70% to 20%.
The race is a dead heat among likely voters upstate, which normally favors Republicans. Zeldin is narrowly leading there, 45-44.
