Poll: NY Republican Senate primary still unsettled

By Associated Press

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A new poll shows most New York Republicans have yet to settle on a primary candidate to face Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in the general election.

The Siena College poll Monday also shows Gillibrand with more than 2-to-1 leads among registered voters over all three possible Republican candidates.

The Republicans running in a June 26 primary to face Gillibrand are New York City lawyer Wendy Long, Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos and U.S. Rep. Bob Turner.

Siena found 67 percent of Republicans remain undecided. Fifteen percent said they would vote for Turner, 12 percent for Long and 6 percent for Maragos.

Pollsters called 766 New York registered voters May 6-10. Among the 205 Republicans polled, there is a margin of error of plus or minus 6.8 percentage points.
