Schreibman, Gibson in Statistical Tie in New NY-19 Poll
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today released a new Grove Insight poll that shows Julian Schreibman polling inside the margin of error, of Congressman Chris Gibson (NY-19). Schreibman currently receives 41 percent to Gibson’s 43 percent with 16 percent undecided.
Voters are more likely to give Congressman Gibson negative reviews (44%) than offer a positive evaluation (36%) of his work in Congress. A majority (51%) have favorable opinions of Barack Obama. The President is ahead by seven points over Mitt Romney, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand leads her Republican challenger 25 points (55% Gillibrand; 30% Long)
“With just under a month left, voters are giving Congressman Gibson and his vote to end Medicare a failing grade,” said Josh Schwerin, Northeast Press Secretary at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “With Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan dragging down Congressman Gibson while Senator Gillibrand is on track to win in a landslide, Julian Schreibman is in an excellent position to beat the unpopular incumbent and win this race.”
