Closer, But Still Not Close

Republican John Sweeney’s lead over Kirsten Gillibrand in the 20th congressional district upstate is a “strong” 14 percentage points, according to the new Siena poll. But Sweeney’s lead is down from 19 points in August.

The poll notes “Both candidates hold voters of their own party, with Sweeney leading among Republicans 77-17 percent and Gillibrand leading among Democrats 73-21 percent. Independent voters give their support to Sweeney 46-40 percent.”
