The polls had barely closed when the Associated Press and other media outlets declared Andrew Cuomo the winner of today’s gubernatorial election over Rob Astorino.

The local results aren’t in yet, but Cuomo, as a Democrat, had a major advantage over Astorino, a Republican and Westchester County executive.

State-wide, Democrats outnumber Republicans by a 2-to-1 ratio. It’s the opposite in Orleans County, where Republicans outnumber Democrats by a 2-to-1 ratio.
