Poll: Lazio has `shaky' lead for GOP primary

By By the Associated Press

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Rick Lazio is maintaining a lead over Carl Paladino in the race for the Republican nomination for governor in New York, but it could be shaky.

Lazio, a former congressman, has a 47 percent to 35 percent lead over Paladino, a millionaire Buffalo developer.

But the Quinnipiac University poll shows a lot of unsure Republicans as the Sept. 14 primary approaches.

Eighteen percent are undecided and nearly half say they could change their mind.

Paladino's voters say they are more certain they will stick to their choice.

The winning Republican will face Democratic nominee Andrew Cuomo.

Lazio also has the Conservative Party line and Paladino has his newly formed Taxpayers line which could keep the candidates in the race until the November general election.
