Siena poll: Clinton 30 points ahead of Trump in NY

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A new poll says Democrat Hillary Clinton has a 30-point lead over Republican Donald Trump in their home state of New York.

The Siena College survey released Monday gave Clinton a 25 percentage point advantage over Trump when the Green and Libertarian party candidates were included.

While sixty percent of respondents answered “no” when asked if Clinton is honest and trustworthy, they still rated her as more trustworthy than Trump.

They also said Clinton is more qualified to be president and more likely to be effective in dealing with Congress.

The telephone survey from last Sunday through Monday included 717 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.
