(CNN) – A new poll out Tuesday shows New York Gov. David Paterson's re-elections chances remain slender.
In the new survey conducted by Siena College, only 27 percent of New York voters view Paterson favorably while 63 percent hold an unfavorable view of him. That result is nearly identical to a similar poll released last month.
The survey also suggests New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo would easily defeat Paterson in a Democratic primary by a margin of 70-19 percent.
Even if Paterson makes it to a general election matchup, the poll shows he would lose to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani by a 28 point margin.
The poll, which surveyed 622 New York state registered voters, was conducted on May 18-21 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
