“… The Siena College survey has Democrat Bill Owens with 36 percent of likely voters in New York’s 23rd Congressional District and Conservative Party upstart Doug Hoffman with 35 percent. Republican Dede Scozzafava had 20 percent … The percentage of voters with an unfavorable impression of Scozzafava, a member of the state assembly, spiked from 29 percent two weeks ago to 51 percent this week … “Hoffman is now winning among Republican voters,” said Siena pollster Steven Greenberg, who added that the Conservative nominee also maintained his slight lead among independents. “He is getting the support of 50 percent of Republicans. Scozzafava is down to 25 percent.” …”
Scozzafava is toast. Fortunately, guns aren’t an issue in this race and Hoffman does claim he is a member of NRA.
