Governor Andrew Cuomo holds a 22 point lead over his Republican opponent Marc Molinaro, 50 percent to 28 percent, according to the latest Siena College poll.
Cuomo is viewed favorably by 50 percent of likely voters and unfavorably by 46 percent.
That's his highest unfavorability rating ever.
Molinaro has a 24 percent favorability rating, with 56 percent not knowing him or not having an opinion.
Meanwhile, the race for State Attorney General appears to be tighter than expected.
The survey shows Democratic Public Advocate Letitia James leading Republican Keith Wofford by 14 percentage points, 50 percent to 36 percent.
While both are getting major support from their individual parties, independents back James over Wofford by just two percentage points.
The poll was conducted between September 20th and 27th.
It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
