ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – The latest poll shows Democrat Andrew Cuomo with a 25-point lead over tea party Republican Carl Paladino in the race to be New York’s next governor.

The Siena College poll released Sunday shows Cuomo with a 58 percent to 33 percent lead among likely voters just days before Tuesday’s election.

The margin is similar to large leads found in other polls favoring the son of former Gov. Mario Cuomo over the millionaire Buffalo developer.

Siena’s Steven Greenberg calls Cuomo’s advantage seemingly invincible and overwhelming.

Cuomo is shown beating Paladino in every region. Among upstate likely voters, Cuomo has a 47 percent to 41 percent lead.

The poll questioned 603 likely voters Wednesday through Saturday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 points.
