The Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday found 47 percent of NY voters back Clinton, the former secretary of state, with 35 percent supporting Trump, the Manhattan businessman.
In an interview with CBS that was broadcast on Sunday, the NY businessman dismissed his vice presidential candidate's support for the Iraq War in 2003, saying, "I don't care". According to the press release, "New York City voters back Clinton 63 - 20 percent, while upstate voters go to Trump 48 - 36 percent".
Mike Pence, then a congressman, voted for the war, as did Clinton, who was a senator for NY at the time. "Suburban voters are divided, with 40 percent for Trump and 39 percent for Clinton".
The poll of 1,104 NY voters was conducted Wednesday through Sunday by live interviewers who called land lines and cell phones.
Presumptive Democratic Nominee for President Hillary Clinton spoke at the Minneapolis Convention Center on Monday to the American Federation of Teachers.
"No", said Trump. "She's not".
"As Republicans rally in Cleveland and Democrats prepare for their Philadelphia convention, Hillary Clinton seems to have her adopted home state votes safely locked up", said Quinnipiac's Maurice Carroll said in a statement.
The poll also found U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., with a commanding lead (60-28 percent) over Republican challenger Wendy Long in his re-election bid.
