From Sen. Craig Johnson "The results of this poll are a reflection of Senator Johnson's tireless efforts on behalf of Nassau's residents. He will continue to fight for real tax relief and to help New York state get back on the right track, just as he helped bring Nassau County back from the brink of fiscal crisis."
From La-La Land.. err... the Senate Republican Campaign Committee Spokesman Joe Conway "Siena's poll confirms the fact that our Senate incumbents are running strong and poised for victory across the state. It also confirms that our other candidates are campaigning on precisely the same job creation, economic and tax relief issues that New Yorkers are concerned about, and our own polls show that they are gaining ground and poised for victory as well.
"Siena is new to this kind of polling, and they didn't poll a number of key races, but overall this poll bolsters our confidence that were going to both maintain the majority and pick up seats on Election Day."
First Conway says the poll "confirms the fact" that the republican incumbants are safe but the poll says no such thing. Trunzo and Maltese should be running away with their races simply because they have been in office decades. Instead, Trunzo has a slim 6 point lead and Maltese is dead even with his challenger.
And then come the excuses that Sienna is "new to this kind of polling."
What other "key races" are there?
Sienna polled where republicans have been dumping money and getting nothing in return.
