Democrats say the governor’s race has been too tight for their liking. But a new polling suggests Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin's momentum is tapering off.
An Emerson College Poll released this week shows Hochul with an eight-point lead.
With undecided voters’ support accounted for, Hochul’s lead extends to nine points - a big boost after a month of negative polling news for her campaign,
"This is our Super Bowl to save New York," said Hochul.
Democrats took the time to remind voters what will be at stake.
"Education, housing, jobs, job training, economic development," says Mount Vernon Mayor Shawyn Patterson-Howard.
Hochul's stop in Mount Vernon underscored the importance of suburban and minority votes.
"They're the ticket that stands for women, they stand for education, they stand for children, they stand for the unions," says Ximena Francella, of the Hispanic Democrats of Westchester.
Republicans believe they are as close as ever to controlling the governor's seat for the first time in over 15 years.
