Poll:  Clinton Holds Large Lead Over Trump in New York

A recent Quinnipiac University poll shows Democrat Hillary Clinton leading Republican Donald Trump 47 – 35 percent among all New York State voters.  According to the poll, Clinton leads 63 – 20 percent in New York City, while Trump leads 48 – 36 percent Upstate.  The two are nearly tied in the suburban New York City region, with Trump leading 40 – 39 percent.

It is no surprise that Mrs. Clinton hold such a large lead in New York City, or that Mr. Trump has a large lead Upstate.  The big question in the race will be how the two candidates impact down-ballot races, especially State Senate races, in the state’s suburban areas.
