The tough-on-crime Zeldin is now leading the progressive incumbent governor by 48.4% to 47.6%, according to the Trafalgar Group poll released late Monday.

Only 4% of the likely voters polled said they were still undecided on who they wanted to elect as the Empire State’s next governor on Nov. 8.

“Crime Wave Kathy is driving New York right off a cliff,” Zeldin said in a statement after the poll’s release. “To repeal cashless bail, fire rogue DAs like Alvin Bragg, stop congestion pricing, and take other bold action to save our state, Hochul’s gotta go.

“On November 8th, we are going to win this race for governor, because we have to win this race. Losing is not an option. New Yorkers throughout the state are sick and tired of the attacks on our wallets, safety, freedom and kids’ education. They’re fed up with the direction of Kathy Hochul’s New York, her rampant pay to play corruption, soaring crime, and crushing costs.”

Zeldin could actually pull off a win here.

A Zeldin win would be a shock to the system.

New York needs a change.
