Siena poll shows tight race in NY-21 (updated)
November 1, 2012 - Chris Morris
A Siena Reseach Institute poll released this morning shows U.S. Rep Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, and Watertown businessman Matt Doheny, a Republican, in a tight race for New York's 21st Congressional District.
The poll shows Owens leading Doheny and Don Hassig, who will be on the Green Party line, by a margin of 44-43-1 just days before the election. The poll's margin of error is 3.9 percent.
In a statement issued this morning, Doheny said he's pleased with the poll results. A poll released by Doheny's campaign on Tuesday painted a similar picture of the race.
"No matter which way you look at it, momentum is on our side," Doheny said. "These numbers line up with our earlier polls and the shift we've seen over the past month. I'm going to continue to hit the campaign trail hard, outwork the other side, and sprint through the finish line."
Here's the response to today's Siena poll from the Owens campaign: "We've said all along the only poll that matters is on Election Day, but Bill Owens is in a strong position to win," campaign spokesman Jon Boughtin said in a press release. "Bill will visit all 12 counties in the next few days, while his campaign will reach out to tens of thousands of voters on the phone and at their doorsteps. Voters have responded to Bill Owens' message of bipartisanship and helping to create jobs, and he looks forward to continuing this work in Washington."
