Governor Andrew Cuomo’s polling lead is shrinking in the race’s final days.
That’s according to a Siena College poll released Sunday, which shows the 2-term incumbent’s lead over GOP challenger Marc Molinaro is down to 13 points, 49%-36%, among likely voters.
That’s down from the 22-point margin Cuomo enjoyed last month. Independents now favor Molinaro by 7 points, after picking Cuomo by 10 last month, as Cuomo’s favorability rating went underwater for the first time, 45%-49%.
In other statewide races, Siena shows Democrat Tish James with a 49%-37% edge over Republican Keith Wofford for Attorney General, incumbent Senator Kirsten Gillibrand with a 61%-29% lead over challenger Chele Farley, and Comptroller Tom DiNapoli leading GOP opponent Jonathan Trichter by 37 points.
