Gibson Leads Schreibman 52-36%
Congressman Chris Gibson, seeking his first re-election to the House in New York's newly redrawn 19th congressional district, has a commanding lead over his largely unknown Democrat opponent, according to the results of the latest Siena Research Institute poll on the race.
Gibson (R) - 52%
Schreibman (D) - 36%
Undecided - 11%
The Congressman leads Mr. Schreibman in all corners of the district, however, his stranglehold over five mostly rural, Republican counties (he leads 63-28% in Columbia, Greene, Montgomery, Rennselaer and Schoharie) has boosted his campaign significantly, and if it continues to election day will allow him plenty of room to breathe easily.
With just seven weeks to election day and Congressman Gibson looking only to expand his lead, I don't believe there should be any doubt in his campaign's mind who will come away victorious in November...
What say you?
Oh, one more note: Congressman Gibson has the support of 83% of Republicans, 50% of Independents, and interestingly enough, also 21% of Democrats... His campaign isn't leading on the backs of the faithful, but winning with the support of everyone, which is what you want to see in a political environment such as ours.
