Siena Dems-Only Poll Shows More Of The Same

On the eve of the first (only?) debate between the two Democratic candidates for governor in New York, Siena College has released a new poll on the statewide Democratic primaries.

The numbers are not unlike those when we first started following the polls in the winter, and certainly no different than what we've been seeing in the past few months.

In the governor's race, Attorney General Eliot Spitzer leads Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi by 69 points.

In the Senate race, Sen. Hillary Clinton has a similarly lopsided lead of 67 points against anti-war and labor activist Jonathan Tasini.

In the attorney general race, Andrew Cuomo has gained a bit on Mark Green, leading Green 45% to 27%, up from his 37% to 23% lead in the May Siena poll. Charlie King and Sean Patrick Maloney clock in at 3% each.

In a preference poll for the 2008 election, registered Democrats polled by Siena favor Hillary Clinton (38%) over Al Gore (23%) and John Edwards (15%).

The Siena Research Institute will release it's New York GOP poll later this week.
