Tight GOP Race for New York Governor

A new Siena College poll in New York finds Rick Lazio (R) and Carl Paladino (R) locked in a virtual dead heat in the Republican primary for governor. Lazio holds a slight 43% to 42% lead.

Said pollster Steven Greenberg: "In the final days of the campaign, likely Republican primary voters are split between Lazio and Paladino. A heavier than normal Republican turnout upstate will likely hand the nomination to Paladino, who leads upstate 53-32 percent, while a heavier than normal downstate suburban turnout will likely make Lazio the Republican nominee, as he leads there 55-30 percent. Lazio also leads 53-33 percent in New York City, which traditionally produces a smaller vote than any region in a Republican primary."

The winner will take on Andrew Cuomo (D) in the general election.
