Poll: Murphy Within Four Points of Tedisco

ALBANY—Scott Murphy, who was unknown to voters six weeks ago, has pulled within four points of Assembly Minority Leader Jim Tedisco in the race to succeed Kirsten Gillibrand in Congress, according to a poll released today.
The last Siena Poll showed Tedisco ahead by 12 points. A poll released yesterday by Murphy’s campaign showed Tedisco’s lead had narrowed to seven points. The poll, conducted this week and surveying 712 likely voters, has Murphy just outside the 3.7 percent margin of error.
“Scott Murphy has significantly narrowed the gap against Jim Tedisco, trailing by only four points in a district that has a 15-point Republican enrollment edge,” said Steven Greenberg, spokesman for the Siena New York Poll.
