If the presidential vote was only held in New York, President Obama would be re-elected.
That's according to a new poll from the Siena Research Institute.
The survey shows president Obama has a large lead over Mitt Romney 59 to 35 percent.
It's similar to 2008, when President Obama carried the state by a 63 to 36 percent margin.
The poll also shows most New Yorkers who participated in the survey want a democratic majority in the state senate now controlled by republicans.
