Carpetbagging Husband of Facebook Founder Getting Crushed in NY Congressional Bid

Posted by on Sep 12, 2014 at 1:10 pm

This ought to make the folks at the Free Beacon happy since they’ve been carpet-bombing the carpetbagger for months now. As reported in The Hill today, it appears the voters in the mid-Hudson region of New York State aren’t taking well to a wealthy interloper in their midst.

Two new polls spell bad news for Democrats in key New York House races, giving Rep. Chris Gibson (R) and candidate Elise Stefanik (R) sizable leads over their challengers.

In the new Siena College poll of New York’s 19th District, Gibson takes 57 percent to Democrat Sean Eldridge’s 33 percent support among likely voters, with 10 percent undecided.

It shows, however, Eldridge is still largely unknown in the district — 57 percent of respondents said they had no opinion of him, while about a fifth viewed him favorably and a fifth viewed him unfavorably. 

Gibson is seen favorably by 57 percent of the district, while only a quarter view him unfavorably.

He’s so far behind he may not be able to see Gibson with his swanky $2,500 binoculars. It’ll be difficult for Eldredge to make up this seemingly insurmountable deficit, but if there’s any good news his husband is sure to help saturate the local airwaves the next eight weeks, so they’ll at least help the local economy.

Meanwhile, as if Democrats need any more bad news, it looks like they’ll be losing a seat further upstate.

In New York’s 21st District, where Rep. Bill Owens’s (D) retirement has made the seat more competitive for Republicans, Stefanik takes 46 percent support to Democrat Aaron Woolf’s 33 percent support, while Green Party candidate Matt Funiciello takes 10 percent. Eleven percent are undecided.

While both Stefanik and Woolf are seen favorably, she’s better-known in the district, and a plurality, 42 percent, say they have no opinion of Woolf.

Democrats believe both races will tighten as voters tune in to the elections and advertising picks up in the districts.

Good luck with that. Staring at such deficits likely means they’ll divert resources elsewhere and let’s face it, they’re hemorrhaging nationwide.
