A Tighter Race?

by on October 24, 2010

A new Rasmussen Poll suggests a tighter race than the recent NYT and Siena polls.

Is there still a chance?

Who knows, but there is hope.

A poll that just last month said Carl Paladino’ suport had risen above the 20 percentage point mark, is today predicting a 14 point lead for Democrat Andrew Cuomo in the Governor’s race.

Rasmussen Reports survey of 500 likely voters was conducted Oct. 19, one day after Paladino, Cuomo and 5 other candidates squared off in a statewide televised debate.

The survey says Cuomo has 51% support to Paladino’s 37%. Five percent (5%) like some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided.

The Rasmussen survey also found that Non-affiliated voters prefer Paladino by a 2-1 margin, but Cuomo has the support of 79 percent of Democrats, compared to Paladino’s hold on only 58 percent of the state’s Republicans.

So what are we to believe? Before the primary, Lazio and Paladino were neck-and-neck, and we all know how that turned out. Paladino’s campaign has been pointing this out, so we’ll see just how this reenergizes his campaign… if it does.
