Gov. Andrew Cuomo's rating among New York voters has slipped a bit in the latest Siena Poll, but he still leads Rob Astorino, the only declared Republican candidate for governor, by 35 points.

The survey released Monday by Siena College shows Cuomo leading the Westchester County executive 61-26 percent, down from 64-22 percent last month.

Voters say Cuomo has been an effective governor by a 64-28 percent margin. A year after the SAFE Act gun-control law was enacted, voters support it by a 2-to-1 margin. Voters support Cuomo's proposal for state-funded college for prison inmates by a 53-43 percent margin.

A plurality of voters, 47-43 percent, said a Republican can beat Cuomo in this election.

The telephone poll of 813 registered voters conducted March 16-20 has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
