The Campaign Spot

NY-20 Still Close, but Looking Tough for Tedisco

The numbers in New York’s 20th congressional district continue to slide in the wrong direction for Republican Jim Tedisco, at least according to Siena. (HT: David Weigel.)

Siena finds Democrat Scott Murphy ahead by four . . . but strangely, 45 percent of voters think Tedisco will win, only 35 percent think Murphy will win. Couple that with the perception that Tedisco is running a more negative campaign, I wonder if the thinking of most respondents is, “I’m immune to negative campaigning, but I don’t think my neighbors are.”
