DCCC Poll: Weprin Leads Turner By 8

One day after the campaign of Republican Bob Turner released a poll showing the special election in New York's Ninth District deadlocked, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee put out its own internal poll, which showed Democrat David Weprin with an eight-point lead.

The Global Strategy Group survey shows Weprin with 47 percent of the vote, and Turner with 39 percent. Fourteen percent remain undecided. The poll surveyed 400 likely voters between August 30-31 and has a 4.9 percent margin of error.

The poll found Democrats with a significant edge on the generic ballot, 46 to 32 percent, in a Queens and Brooklyn district where registered Democrats greatly outnumber Republicans.

The truth of where the race stands is likely somewhere in between the two internal polls. Weprin may have a slight advantage, but that's too close for comfort for Democrats in a district that has been safely in their hands for decades.
