Matt Doheny's campaign released poll results this week that show a close race in New York's 21st Congressional District.
The poll, which was conducted by Public Opinion Strategies, a national political and public affairs firm based in Virginia that primarily serves Republican clients, shows that incumbent U.S. Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, is "vulnerable," according to the firm's vice president, Robert Blizzard.
"Given the vulnerability in Owens' numbers and voters' wanting a check-and-balance type Republican in Washington, Matt Doheny remains in good shape heading into the final week of this neck-and-neck campaign," Blizzard said in a poll memo.
The poll shows Owens leading Doheny among voters "most likely to turnout on Election Day" by a margin of 42 to 40 percentage points, according to a press release issued by the Doheny campaign.
A few regional media outlets are reporting that the Siena Research Institute will issue a poll tomorrow morning, although I haven't received a notice yet.
