From the Morning Memo:

Democrat Hillary Clinton leads Republican rival Donald Trump among New York voters in the race for the presidency, 57 percent to 27 percent, a poll released Monday by Siena College found.

In a four-way race between Clinton, Trump, Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Libertarian Gary Johnson, the former secretary of state still receives 50 percent of the vote, with Trump earning 25 percent.

The poll comes after a Clinton-Trump matchup in a June survey found her leading 54 percent to 31 percent and after weeks of missteps from Trump himself, including a feud with a gold star family who spoke at the Democratic National Convention and claiming President Obama is “the founder” of the Islamic State terrorist group.

Obama is viewed favorably by 62 percent of voters in New York, the poll found.

New York has not voted for a Republican presidential candidate since 1984 when Ronald Reagan won a landslide second term. The poll underscores a not wholly surprising fact: Despite claims from some Republicans the deep blue state could be competitive for Trump, the numbers do not bear that out.

Clinton is viewed as more qualified to be commander in chief than Trump among New York voters by a 40-percentage point margin. At the same time, Clinton is viewed as more likely to be able to work with Congress than Trump.

“Despite Trump’s claims to carry New York, the Empire State seems firmly planted on the blue side of the map, as Clinton holds a commanding 30-point lead in a head-to-head matchup and a similarly strong 25-point, two-toone lead in a four-way matchup,” said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg.

“New Yorkers have voted Democratic in the last seven presidential elections and there does not appear to be a real threat to end that streak.”

Nevertheless, most voters in New York view both Clinton and Trump as untrustworthy: Only 37 percent of voters believe Clinton to be trustworthy, while 28 percent hold that view of Trump.

Upstate, where Trump is expected to do well, Clinton still out-polls him there, 48 percent to 37 percent in a two-person race. In a four-way race, Clinton defeats Trump upstate, 42 percent to 34 percent.

A majority of voters across every demographic in New York expected Clinton to defeat Trump in November.

The poll of 717 voters in New York was conducted from Aug. 7 through Aug. 10. It has a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.
