NY 26: Hochul Attacks Opponents, Appeals To Seniors

The renewed attack comes as a new, automated Democratic poll shows Hochul in the lead, in line with other polling that shows the upstate New York special turning into a three-way contest. The automated poll commissioned by Daily Kos and the SEIU, conducted by Public Policy Polling, gave Hochul her first lead of the race. She has 35 percent of the vote to Corwin's 31 percent, while Davis registers 24 percent. A Siena poll two weeks ago gave Corwin a five-point lead, and an internal survey last weeks from Hochul's campaign showed her trailing Corwin by only 1 point. The PPP IVR survey was conducted May 5-8 and tested 1,048 likely voters for a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent. In the district for a Corwin fundraiser, House Speaker John Boehner downplayed the latest polling numbers. "Polls never sent anyone to Washington...but votes do," said Boehner. "These candidates don't have real jobs. Jane does. And that's not only valuable to Western New York, but the Republican Party."
