Polls, polls, and more polls...

Looks like Quinnipiac University and the Siena Research Institute have some explaining to do.

Quinnipiac came out with a poll yesterday showing that tea party Republican Carl Paladino was making huge gains on Democrat Andrew Cuomo in New York's gubernatorial race.

The numbers showed Cuomo with a 49 to 43 percentage point lead over Paladino.

Then, today, Siena answered back with a poll showing a very different race.

This poll shows Cuomo with a commanding lead -- 57 percent to Paladino's measly 24 percent.

So what gives? Does Cuomo have a comfortable lead, or is Paladino gaining rapidly?

Meanwhile, Siena says U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer have nothing to worry about.

Gillibrand leads Republican challenger Joe DioGuardi 57 percent to 31 percent. Schumer leads GOP candidate Jay Townsend 63 percent to 30 percent.
