Matthew Hamilton in Capitol Confidential reports that Democrat Hillary Clinton leads Republican Donald Trump by 24 points, according to a Siena College released Oct. 19. The poll says Clinton leads by six points outside New York City and its suburbs. Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green Party's Jill Stein get five and four percent support according to the poll. Paul Kirby in The Daily Freeman reports that every Hudson Valley politician he could find debunked Trump's claims of "rigged" or "fixed" elections. A spokesperson for congressional candidate John Faso agreed. “We’re confident of an honest election in our district,” Faso campaign manager Dain Pascocello said. “That said, we’ll monitor polls on Election Day as we normally do to ensure everyone follows the rules.” Faso says he supports the Republican nominee for president, but may not actually vote for Trump. The poll results also showed Democrat Charles Schumer leads Republican Wendy Long 66-27 for Schumer's U.S. Senate seat. And Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s favorable-unfavorable numbers fell slightly to 56-favorable/41 percent unfavorable, from 57-39 in September.
