A new Zogby Analytics poll shows a shift in Oneida County’s Republican Congressional stronghold.

The poll shows Democratic challenger Anthony Brindisi with a 7 percent lead over incumbent Republican Claudia Tenney for this November’s election for the 22nd Congressional District seat.

Zogby Analytics conducted a random telephone and online survey of 358 likely voters within the 22nd Congressional District, from April 23-27, which a margin of error of +/- 5.2 percentage points.

According to the poll, 47 percent of voters said they would vote for Brindisi, while 40 percent said they would vote for Tenney. While 13 percent said they were undecided, when they were asked which candidate they were leaning toward, Brindisi’s lead jumped to double digits, according to the poll.

“I think polls are great,” Brindisi said. “It's nice to be leading and there's going to be lots of polls that are done throughout the course of this campaign to try and predict the outcome, but the poll that matters the most to me is the poll on Election Day. And I'm going to continue traveling around the district over the next few months listening to voters.”

Tenney's campaign responded to the poll with a statement that said, in part:

"Our campaign isn't worried about a low-ranking, one-sided pollster with ties to the Brindisi family who has been deemed 'the worst pollster in the world.' Zogby's suspicious methods are well-documented and the high margin of error already renders this 'poll' highly questionable.”

According to the Federal Election Commission, John Zogby donated $500 to Brindisi’s Congressional campaign through his company, John Zogby Strategies.

In that same poll, voters in Oneida, Herkimer and Madison counties were asked whether they support the downtown hospital project. According to the results, 47 percent of voters opposed the idea of a hospital, while 44 percent supported the hospital plan.

A third of voters say they strongly opposed the project, and 20 percent say they strongly supported it.
