Gotham Results. Zeldin made serious inroads into Hochul’s New York City tallies. In a town where Democrats outnumber Republicans 7 to 1, Lee had a strong showing. He polled 30 percent of the Gotham vote to 70 percent for Hochul. Had he gotten just 5 percent more of the city’s vote he would had won a stunning upset. This is twice the number of votes the Republican challenger to Cuomo received 4 years ago. The handwriting is clearly on the wall. Even Democrats are forestalling their party’s excessive tax and spend and soft on crime policies. Hochul is beholden to the far left Working Families Party for giving her 11 percent of her final tally. She will further alienate the center as she panders to the liberal extreme. Gotham Results. The forces at work make for the resurgence of the Republican Party in New York !!
