The poll was conducted by the Siena Research Institute at Siena College.
58% of those polled picked Gov. Cuomo, and 28% went with Astorino, the current Westchester County Executive.
However, Cuomo's lead dropped to 15 points when an unknown Working Families Party candidate was thrown into the mix. If a more progressive candidate were to run, the poll showed 39% for Cuomo, 24% for Astornio and 24% for the unknown Working Families candidate.
84% of those polled said corruption in Albany was a problem, but less than one-third have followed the Moreland Commission, which was formed to investigate that corruption. Even fewer people (less than one-quarter) knew about the disbanding of the commission, after the Moreland Act was passed.
