Gillibrand Headed for a Blowout

A new Quinnipiac poll in New York finds Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) leads challenger Joseph DioGuardi (R) by 21 points among likely voters, 55% to 34%.

In the state's other Senate race, Sen. Charles Schumer (D) tops challenger Jay Townsend (R) by an even larger margin, 63% to 32%.

Notes pollster Maurice Carroll: "If Republicans are going to take back the U.S. Senate, it doesn't look as if New York will be much help. Both New York seats are on the ballot and Gillibrand and Schumer have comfortable leads."
