5:46 p.m.: As promised, here's some audio from my interview with the pollster, Greenberg. After describing the gubernatorial race, Greenberg describes poll results showing the overall disapproval of state government among voters.
The poll did not ask about Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino, Greenberg said, because the fieldwork for this poll had already begun by the time Paladino's name emerged as a serious candidate.
Paladino will be included in polls going forward, he said
9:52 a.m.: Democrat Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo still has a big lead over Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio in a poll released this morning by the Siena Research Institute.
Cuomo's lead over Lazio is 38 points, while his lead over Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy is 47 points, according to the poll of registered voters.

I'm trying to line up an interview with Siena pollster Steven Greenberg. If and when I talk with him, there will be some audio added to this post.
