Anthony Weiner’s Seat Could Go Republican On Tuesday

With just a few hours remaining before the elections in New York, a new poll is showing that a congressional seat once held by former Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner, may now go to a Republican.

The Republican candidate has taken a surprising six-point lead over the Democrat in the closely watched special election to fill the congressional seat vacated by Anthony Weiner, who was forced to quit amid a sexting scandal, according to a Siena (College) Research Institute poll released on Friday.

Republican Robert Turner is ahead of Democrat David Weprin, 50% to 44%, in the latest survey of likely voters in the congressional district that covers parts of Brooklyn and Queens. In an Aug. 10 poll, Siena found that Weprin led Turner 48% to 42%.

Mr. Weiner was forced out of office by both Democrats and Republicans after secret “inappropriate” behavior came to light on Twitter.

The poll was conducted among 886 registered voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
