Shock Poll: GOP tied in race to fill Weiner's old House seat

I think winning this seat is a bit of a reach for Republicans, but the fact it is close doesn't bode well for Obama in 2012. Republican candidate Bob Turner has turned the Democratic-leaning district in Queens and Brooklyn into a battleground by making the special election as a referendum on the administration and Obama's anti-Israeli views. The republican commissioned poll shows the race tied at42% each.

(Roll Call)- A new Republican-commissioned poll showed the race to replace ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner (D) in New York’s 9th district to be a dead heat.

A McLaughlin & Associates poll of 300 likely voters found 42 percent would vote for state Assemblyman David Weprin (D) while 42 percent said they would vote for retired businessman Bob Turner (R).

Sixteen percent of those polled said they were undecided with less than two weeks to go before the Sept. 13 special election. The poll was conducted for Turner's campaign.
