Governor Andrew Cuomo's poll numbers have taken a slight dip after his anti-corruption commission stirred up controversy, but he still leads by more than 30 points over his Republican challenger.

A Marist College poll released Tuesday gives Cuomo 54 percent of the vote, while Republican challenger Rob Astorino has 23 percent.

Last month's poll showed Cuomo with 59 percent of the vote, to Astorino's 24 percent.

The survey of 1,039 state residents was conducted by phone and has a 3.4 percent margin of error.

It was sponsored by NBC 4 New York and The Wall Street Journal.

The poll shows the ongoing investigation into Cuomo's alleged interference with the Moreland Commission has had little effect on his lead over the lesser-known Astorino.
