Closing the Gap. A recently conducted poll by co/efficient shows Zeldin trailing Hochul by just 6 percent. Other polls had put her way out in front. Zeldin leads among whites, Hispanics, independents, and upstate and in the New York suburbs. Hochul leads among blacks and in New York City. Men favor Zeldin while women go for Hochul. As the pollster said, the race is much closer than people think. Much can happen in the 8 weeks leading up to the election. Closing the Gap. Zeldin needs the support of freedom loving Patriots to pull off an Upset !!
