Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by 25-points in a four-way race in New York State, according to a new poll from Siena College.

Clinton's support is at 50% in the State, with Trump at 25%. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is in third with 9%, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein came in fourth in the poll with 6%.

In a two-way race, Clinton's lead over Trump extends to 30-points, 57-27. It's the largest lead Clinton has ever held over Trump in Siena's polling.

According to the Siena poll, Voters say Clinton is more honest and trustworthy, more qualified, and would be more effective working with Congress.

The Poll also found President Obama's favorability rating has risen since March, with 62% now viewing the President favorably.

The majority of voters (54%) told pollsters the United States is heading in the wrong direction, but that number dropped from the poll in August.
