Siena Poll: Owens 44, Doheny 43

Doheny consolidated Republicans between September and the end of October but made his real gains among independents, who supported Owens over him 54 percent to 24 percent in September. Now the two candidates are deadlocked, with 41 percent of independents choosing Owens and 43 percent choosing Doheny. Meanwhile, President Obama and Mitt Romney have swapped positions in the district, with Romney now leading Obama by four points, 49-45, after Obama held a five-point, 50-45 lead in September. The presidential candidates' favorables have also flipped, with Romney moving into net positive territory and Obama declining into net negative territory since the last poll. Siena released two other House polls Thursday, finding Reps. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y. and Michael Grimm, R-N.Y. cruising with comfortable leads and support over 50 percent in their districts.
