A new Siena College poll finds Governor Cuomo in a double-digit lead against his Republican opponent for the fall elections. But, the survey finds that ratio changes, if a progressive third party candidate emerges.

The poll also found that 85 percent of New Yorkers think corruption is a big problem in Albany. But most people say they have not followed news about the disbanding of the state’s anti-corruption panel - the Moreland Commission.

However, most people also felt the state budget resolution ending the commission was a bad compromise.
