PPP Poll: Turner Over Weprin 47-41% in NY-9, Plurality Oppose SSM

 

Public Policy Polling:

Republican Bob Turner is poised to pull a huge upset in the race to replace Anthony Weiner as the Congressman from New York's 9th Congressional District. He leads Democrat David Weprin 47-41 with Socialist Workers candidate Christopher Hoeppner at 4% and 7% of voters remaining undecided.

[Turner is] winning the Jewish vote by a 56-39 margin, very unusual for a Republican candidate.

Two more interesting points in the poll...

First, a plurality of those polled in the district are against SSM 45%-41% with a further 14% saying "not sure" (we wonder if that means they are "not sure" about sharing their personal beliefs about marriage over the phone?).

Second, 55% of those polled said the issue of SSM was either very or somewhat important in deciding who they will support tomorrow (that figure jumps to 63% among Hispanics).

We'll be fascinated to see the final result of tomorrow's election.
