Emerson College poll shows Hochul leading Zeldin by 8 points in the New York governor’s race

A week before election day, an Emerson College poll in the governor’s race found that Democratic candidate Gov. Hochul was eight percentage points ahead of Republican challenger Rep. Lee Zeldin.

Hochul led Zeldin by 52% to 44% according to the survey of 1,000 potential voters, which was conducted between last Friday and Monday. Three percent of respondents were unsure of their vote.

In the most recent Emerson survey of the contest, released last week, Hochul held a 6-point lead over Zeldin.

According to opinion polls, the race, which was once dismissed in deep-blue New York, has become close to a single digit in the fall.

A friend of former President Donald Trump who voted to invalidate the results of the 2020 presidential election, Zeldin, was shown to be trailing Hochul by more than 20 points in some summer polling.

Some voters have responded favorably to Zeldin’s anti-crime rhetoric, and inflation has improved the prospects of Republicans across the country.

In a poll released Tuesday by the Trafalgar Group, a dubious Republican-affiliated pollster, Zeldin even held a 1-point advantage over Buffalo Democrat Hochul.

Hochul led by 6 points on Tuesday, according to the average of polls from poll aggregator FiveThirtyEight, a very slim edge in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans by more than two to one.

Democrats have worried that their efforts to secure swing House races on Long Island and upstate could be hampered by a tiny margin on election day, even though Hochul is generally expected to win.

Hochul, who took over as governor after Andrew Cuomo resigned 14 months ago, is vying to become the first woman to lead New York state.

She has highlighted her efforts to safeguard the rights to abortion in New York, get weapons off the streets, and boost employment throughout the state.

Hochul anticipated that she would extend her lead down the stretch on Tuesday.

She spent Tuesday morning in the Bronx after recently conducting intensive campaigning in New York City.
