Gillibrand and Ford’s Numbers

The Marist poll shows an opening for a challenge to Kristen Gillibrand, whether it’s by Harold Ford Jr. or someone else.

Lee Miringoff, director of polling at Marist said, “She’s below 50 percent against Ford, and a third of Democrats is undecided. Her approval rating among Democrats statewide is only 31 percent.”

Gillibrand leads Ford across the board, but both are basically unknown across the state. Liz has more on the spread.

UPDATE: Ford’s spokesman said the poll is “showing declining approval numbers for Senators Schumer and Gillibrand.”
