A new poll by Spectrum News/Siena College shows that Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-New Hartford) and state Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi (D-Utica) are neck and neck for the 22nd Congressional District race.

The poll released Wednesday shows that Tenney has the support of 44 percent of likely voters, while Brindisi has a slight lead with the support of 46 percent of likely voters.

The 22nd Congressional District includes all of Oneida, Madison, Chenango and Cortland counties, and parts of Herkimer, Broome, Oswego and Tioga counties.

“In a district with 30,000 more Republicans than Democrats, incumbent Republican Tenney is barely holding her own versus Democratic challenger Brindisi, who leads 46-44 percent,” said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg in the report about the poll.

In the local area, Tenney has a slight lead with 46 percent of likely voters in Herkimer, Oneida and Oswego counties favoring her over Brindisi, who has the support of 44 percent of likely voters in that area.

The poll also shows that Brindisi fares better with Democrats than Tenney does with Republicans. Brindisi has the support of 80 percent of likely Democratic voters while Tenney has the support of 66 percent of likely Republican voters, according to the poll. Independent voters are divided almost equally in their support for the two candidates, with 44 percent of likely independent voters supporting Brindisi and 43 percent of likely independent voters supporting Tenney.
