ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has a 30-point lead over Donald Trump in their home state of New York, according to a new poll.

The Siena College survey released Monday shows Clinton beating the Republican nominee 57 to 27 percent.


The poll also gave Clinton a 25 percentage point advantage over Trump when the Green and Libertarian party candidates were included.

“Despite Trump’s claims to carry New York, the Empire State seems firmly planted on the blue side of the map,” said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg. “New Yorkers have voted Democratic in the last seven presidential elections and there does not appear to be a real threat to end that streak.”

While 60 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.
