Hillary Clinton continues to poll ahead of Donald Trump in New York (and upstate)

Hillary Clinton and Donald TrumpA few bits from the new Siena poll out Tuesday morning:

If the 2016 election for President was held today, who would you vote for if the candidates were:
Hillary Clinton: 51%
Donald Trump: 30%
Gary Johnson: 8%
Jill Stein: 3%

The numbers for upstate voters: Clinton - 42% | Trump - 36% | Johnson: 11% | Stein 4%

[T]ell me whether you have a favorable opinion or an unfavorable opinion of each person or institution I name.
Hillary Clinton 52% favorable | 46% unfavorable
Donald Trump: 29% favorable | 68% unfavorable

One of the many remarkable things about this presidential election is how much many people seem to not like either candidate.

Do you think Hillary Clinton/Donald Trump is honest and trustworthy or not?
Hillary Clinton: 39% Yes | 58% No
Donald Trump: 29% Yes | 67% No

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 Cuomo: 45%
Prefer someone else: 49%

The Siena Research Institute says this poll was conducted September 11-15 and included 600 likely voters in New York State. Margin of error is +/- 5.

I wish they had included Bernie in the: If the 2016 election for President was held today...

What makes NY state so very special? The oppressive taxes? The dreary weather? The abandoned cities? The sense of Soviet era government that pervades everything? The self rightous moonbats? Just what is it?

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
