Siena poll on Clinton-Trump, Andrew Cuomo re-election, Uber

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump

A few bits from the Siena poll out today of New York State registered voters:

+ Respondents say they would vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in the presidential election 52-31. (Upstate it's 38-40 in favor of Trump, which is shift. When the Siena poll asked about a potential Clinton-Trump matchup this past spring, upstate respondents picked Clinton 51-38.)

+ The "unfavorables" for both Clinton and Trump continue to be high. Clinton's favorable/unfavorable split is 46/51 and Trump's is 27/68.

+ "If Andrew Cuomo runs for re-election as Governor in two years, as things stand now, would you vote to re-elect him or would you prefer someone else?" -- re-elect: 42 percent | prefer someone else: 49 percent

+ "[D]o you support or oppose legislation that would allow ride sharing companies like Uber to operate in your area?" -- support: 70 percent | oppose: 19 percent

+ "Do you support or oppose legislation that would legalize daily fantasy sports companies, like FanDuel or Draft kings, to operate here in New York?" -- support: 37 percent | oppose: 45 percent

The Siena Research Institute poll was conducted May 22-26 with 825 New York State registered voters. Margin of error is +/- 3.9.
