New Poll Shows Lee Zeldin Gaining Ground on Kathy Hochul in New York

New polling backs up what Republican gubernatorial nominee Rep.

Lee Zeldin (above) has argued for months: He is much closer to beating Democratic incumbent Kathy Hochul this November than many people expected in solidly blue New York.

“We’ve consistently been gaining massive ground on Hochul as New Yorkers witness first hand her abysmal record on the issues more important to them — crime, the economy, corruption and more,” .

Zeldin crowed Tuesday after a Quinnipiac Poll showed her with a 50%-to-46% lead among likely voters — a far narrower gap than the landslide 24-point leads she had just weeks ago in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans by roughly 2 to 1.

“The race is definitely tightening, which is not surprising given that neither candidate is exceptionally well known and people are making late decisions.

And because the issues that Zeldin is focusing on are resonating more strongly,” Larry Levy, executive dean of the National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra University, told The Post.
