Hoffman in the lead

The latest polling shows Doug Hoffman leading Bill Owens 41-36%.  Fred Dicker thinks Hoffman is going to win and I’m inclined to agree with him.  Scozzafava’s endorsement of Owens basically validated all of her critics complaints about her.  According to Dicker:

“… A Hoffman win will send shock waves throughout Democratic ranks nationally and in New York, especially among the centrist Blue Dogs, whose moderation usually reflects the presence of a sizeable Republican voting bloc in their districts. “Upstate Democrats are going to be shaking in their boots” if Hoffman wins, one of New York’s best-known Democrats said yesterday …”

That would be good news for gun rights here and nationally.
