The Siena College poll released Wednesday shows Cuomo not only has a lead that Siena's pollster called "overwhelming," but he also has the momentum as the race enters its final two weeks.
Paladino's opportunity for a comeback are also hurt by a high 69 percent disapproval rating.
Siena interviewed 647 likely voters from Oct. 14 to Monday, ending just before the only scheduled debate in the race. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 points.
