Democrat Leads For Weiner's Seat

For the special election to replace Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Assemblyman David Weprin (above left) has opened up an eight-point polling lead over NOM-backed Bob Turner, who also has the support of Orthodox Jews who say Weprin has betrayed them.
The GSG survey also found Weprin's numbers improved when respondents were "informed" of his endorsement by the NYT. (I'm not sure if voters were "informed" about any other endorsements.) Crowed Josh Schwerin of the DCCC: “This poll confirms what we always knew, voters are rejecting Bob Turner’s radical agenda of cutting Medicare and Social Security and leaving 9/11 volunteers out in the cold, while protecting tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires. New Yorkers prefer David Weprin’s plan to grow the economy and protect Medicare and Social Security to Bob Turner’s extremism.”
RELATED: JMG reader David writes to note that he has received robo-text messages claiming that Weprin "defied Jewish law" by voting for same-sex marriage. The text came from Americans In Contact PAC, whose most recent failure was their support of Jane Corwin for NY-26. The special election is this Tuesday.
