that is being reported at syracuse.com
Maffei has opened up a four-point lead over Buerkle, 44 percent to 40 percent, according to the poll of likely voters conducted by the Democratic polling firm Normington, Petts and Associates of Washington, D.C…The poll, conducted July 16 through July 18, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points, suggesting the race is essentially a tossup.
This poll comes to you courtesy of the SEIU and a Democrat Pac
The House Majority PAC/SEIU poll of 400 likely voters in the 24th District found Maffei leading Buerkle 44 percent to 40 percent, with Green Party candidate Ursula Rozum supported by five percent of voters. Eleven percent of voters are undecided.
I seem to recall the Syracuse paper pushing a poll showing Buerkle down 12 points. And when all was said and done Buerkle won by several hundred votes.
So if I’m Ann Marie Buerkle and the post is reporting me trailing within the margin of error, I’m feeling pretty good about my chances this time around. If the polling pushed is as accurate as last time she must be up at least 5.
But that shouldn’t be a surprise, she has three advantages she didn’t have before.
1. She is an incumbent instead of being an unknown.
2. Obama will be voted on next congress
and most important of all, the single thing that will drive more votes to the GOP than anything else:
Obama is on the ballot!
That more than anything else is going to be a godsend for Republicans nationwide.
