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.
