NY GOP gov. candidate Lee Zeldin takes lead over Democratic incumbent Kathy Hochul

The conservative candidate is leading the polls in the key New York gov race, just one-week before election day

For weeks New York’s closely watched gubernatorial race has shown Democratic incumbent Gov. Kathy Hochul and her rival Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin in a neck-and-neck race.

But a new poll released shows Zeldin has taken the lead—just one week out from the election.

According to the Trafalgar Group poll released late Monday, Zeldin, who has taken a tough-on-crime stance is now leading the progressive incumbent governor 48.4% to 47.6%.

Only 4% of the likely voters polled said they remain undecided on who they wanted to elect as the Empire State’s next governor on Nov. 8.

Many issues are important to voters but in New York, crime has taken center stage in the race as violence continues to rock Big Apple both underground in the subway and along many streets—even in broad daylight.

According to statistics—specific crimes like robbery and assaults have spiked, revealing a sizable jump in transit crime.

Zeldin sparred with Hochul over the key issue in a heated debate.

When asked about addressing public safety Hochul said, “It’s about getting the guns off the streets. That’s the first start. We have more to do—but I’m the one to do it.”

Zeldin shot back saying, “Unfortunately Kathy Hochul believes that the only crimes that are being committed all these crimes with guns and yet you have people who are afraid of being pushed in front of oncoming subway cars, they’re being stabbed; beaten to death on the street with hammers.”

He continued, “go talk to the Asian American community and how it impacts them with the loss of lives; Jewish people targeted with raw, violent, antisemitism on our streets—it just happened yet again. We need to be talking about all these other crimes.”

This is a closely watched race. Candidates are embarking on the final push to get-out-the-vote ahead of election day, which is just one week from today.
