RONKONKOMA, NY (WCBS 880) - Insisting his low standing in most polls is no indication of what will happen on Election Day, Carl Paladino brought his ‘mad as hell’ message to a Long Island train station Thursday morning.

LISTEN: WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reports

At the Ronokonkoma Long Island Rail Road station, the Republican and Tea Party candidate for governor of New York was clearly irritated by any mention of those insignificant polls.

“Why do you keep bring up the polls?” Paladino said to reporters including WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs. “Get them out of your head! They mean nothing, nothing at all and I mean that… They’re totally insignificant.”

While the often combative candidate admits making mistakes during the campaign, he says he has no regrets and is following the will of the people.

He says, “They say ‘Go get ‘em Carl!'”
