The elections are just six weeks away (November 8th) and in the race for Governor of New York, incumbent Democrat Kathy Hochul currently holds a 13 point lead against Republican candidate Lee Zeldin.
The most recent poll conducted from September 9th through the 13th by pollster “Data for Progress” sampled 931 likely voters across the state and showed Hochul with 52% of the vote and Zeldin with 39%.
New York has not elected a Republican Governor since 2002 with former governor George Pataki.
X101 spoke with Republican candidate Lee Zeldin back in May of this year where he gave his opinions of the new congressional mapping, the biggest issue he has seen throughout the state, which is crime and public safety.
