Poll: Hochul’s lead over Zeldin shrinks in race for governor
A new Siena College poll says the Gov. Kathy Hochul’s lead over Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin is shrinking.
The poll says Hochul’s lead is down to 11 points, down from 17 just three weeks ago.
Hochul leads Zeldin 52-41%, down from 54-37% in September, in a poll of likely New York State voters released today.
The race for Attorney General also tightened, as Letitia James, the incumbent Democrat, now leads Republican Michael Henry 51-40%, down from 53-37% in September.
In the race for U.S. senator, incumbent Democrat Chuck Schumer leads Republican Joe Pinion 57-37%; last month it was 55-36%. And State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, also a Democrat, continues to have a big lead over Republican Paul Rodriguez, now 54-30%, little changed from 52-29% last month. Support for the $4.2 billion environmental bond act remains strong, 54-26%, compared to 55-26% in September.
