Romney Leads Santorum by 15 Points Among NY Reps

Obama Maintains Roughly Two-to-One Leads Over All Republicans

Almost Two-Thirds of NYers Think America’s Best Days Are Still to Come

Gillibrand, Gaining Momentum with Voters, Looking Stronger for Re-Election

With less than two months to go until the New York State presidential primary, Mitt Romney has opened up a large lead over his three opponents. Rick Santorum is closest, 15 points behind, while Newt Gingrich trails Romney by 25 points and Ron Paul is 27 points back, according to a new Siena College Research Institute poll of registered voters released today. President Obama continues to hold big leads – between 26 and 39 points – over all the Republican candidates.

While by a small majority voters think the country is headed in the wrong direction, an overwhelming majority believes that America’s best days are still to come and not behind us. In the race for United States Senate, Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand remains in a strong position for re-election eight months out. Full release.
