A new poll shows Governor Andrew Cuomo continues to roll forward in his bid for re-election.

The Siena College poll out Monday shows Cuomo with a 37-point lead over challenger Rob Astorino.

The 60-23 percent margin comes from a polling of likely voters.

The poll also shows that when asked if they’d vote for Cuomo or “someone else”, the margin drops.

The poll shows 54% of people would vote for Cuomo in that circumstance, but 38% said someone else.

61% of those questioned say they either don’t know who Astorino is, or have no opinion of him.
