A new poll released today shows Republican Bob Turner with a 4 point lead over Democrat David Weprin in their race to replace disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-New York). In addition to the surprising lead in a district in which Democrats out number Republicans by a margin of 3 to 1, the poll also found that Mr. Turner wins the favorability contest with 37% of respondents viewing him favorably compared to just 29.8% for Mr. Weprin.

With less than two week's to go until the special election to replace disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-New York), Republican Bob Turner has tied Democrat David Weprin according to the latest poll. This despite Mr. Weprin's huge cash advantage and the fact that Democrats outnumber Republicans in the district by a 3 to 1 margin.

New York Assemblyman David Weprin, the Democrat running to replace disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-New York), decided not to attend a scheduled debate Monday night against Republican Bob Turner. The Weprin campaign cited a series of reasons over the hours between the candidate's decision to back out and when the debate was supposed to take place, but Team Turner may have hit it on the nose when they accused Mr. Weprin of hiding after showing a frightening lack of knowledge about one of the most important issues facing the nation.

The battle to replace disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-New York) is getting even more interesting. The September 13 special election between Democrat David Weprin and Republican Bob Turner was supposed to be a slam dunk for State Assemblyman Weprin, a career politician and Orthodox Jew running to represent a district with one of the largest Jewish populations in the country and where Democrats outnumber Republicans 3-1. But the outcome is now far from certain as this race has turned into a Jewish referendum on the Democratic Party's agenda and the Obama administration's policies regarding Israel. That's bad news for Mr. Weprin.
