Lazio Holds Edge in New York Primary

A new Quinnipiac poll in New York finds Rick Lazio (R) leading Carl Paladino (R) in the Republican gubernatorial primary, 47% to 35%. However, Paladino's support looks a little stronger as 62% of his voters say their mind is made up, compared to 42% of Lazio backers.

Said pollster Maurice Carroll: "With many of his supporters open to changing their minds, Rick Lazio has a shaky lead. The people who like Carl Paladino are more likely than Lazio's voters to have made up their minds to stick with him. But an awful lot of voters don't know much about him. Can he convince enough voters that he's the Republican to run against Andrew Cuomo with a big TV blitz in the next two weeks? We'll have to wait and see."
