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%

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.

New York presidential primary 2016 results

presidential primary results Cap Region map clips

Clips from the maps of results for the Democratic (left) and Republican primaries by Congressional District.

Originally published Wednesday 9:30 am. Updated Wednesday at 11:30 am.

Here's a quick scan of (unofficial) results from the New York presidential primaries on Tuesday:

+ In the Democratic primary, Hillary Clinton beat Bernie Sanders statewide 58-42. That resulted in Clinton winning the state's delegates 139-108.

+ In the Republican primary, Donald Trump beat John Kasich and Ted Cruz 60-25-15. That results in Trump picking up 90 delegates and Kasich 5 delegates.

After the jump there are clickable maps of the results by Congressional District (delegates are apportioned by those districts) and counties. The maps highlight some clear differences across the state, like the fact that Bernie Sanders did well upstate.

Picking the candidate the other party likes the least

Siena poll presidential candidates favorable unfavorable

Favorable/unfavorable for each candidate by party. SRI polled 538 New York State likely Democratic primary voters April 6-11 (margin of error +/- 4.5 points), and 469 New York State likely Republican primary voters over the same period (margin of error +/- 5 points).

Three bits from the new Siena New York presidential primary poll, beyond which candidates are said to be leading overall:

Upstate
Despite trailing Hillary Clinton 52-42 overall, Bernie Sanders appears to be doing well upstate -- the poll has him ahead of Clinton here 48-46.

On the Republican side, the poll has Donald Trump leading among upstate voters 48-25-21 over Kasich and Cruz. (He's up 50-27-17 statewide.)

Nominating the person the other side dislikes the most
We always find the favorable/unfavorable question interesting, in part to see what people of one party think about candidates in the other party. And with an eye toward the general election, it's notable that both parties appear to be leaning toward nominating the person the other party dislikes the most.

The color-coded table above shows the favorable/unfavorable numbers from this Siena poll for each of the five candidates, broken out by party. Democrats in this state appear to really not like Donald Trump. And Republicans tend to really not like Hillary Clinton.

Ted Cruz
New York primary voters really don't seem to like Ted Cruz -- majorities of both parties said they had an unfavorable view of him.

Earlier on AOA: Voices from the Albany rallies for Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump

Voices from the Albany rallies for Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump

sanders trump albany rallies composite

The Capital Region isn't used to being courted by presidential candidates, so Monday was remarkable -- three presidential candidates all made stops in the area in the same day: Bernie Sanders at rally in Albany, John Kasich at public events in Troy and Saratoga Springs (and a private event in Albany), and Donald Trump at the TU Center. (And that all follows on visits from Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz just last week).

Thousands of people turned out for these events, with queues for both the Sanders and Trump rallies wrapping around city blocks.

We stopped by those two events in Albany Monday to talk with people standing in line about why the made the effort to be there...

... 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.
