Nearly 60 percent of voters say he should be re-elected.
The survey of 1,337 voters last Wednesday through Sunday has a margin of error of 2.7 percentage points.
A new Marist poll shows even bigger margins against Astorino, in a rematch with businessman Carl Paladino or against celebrity Donald Trump.
