Kirsten Gillibrand, Joe DioGuardi race closer than expected: polls

WASHINGTON – Two stunning new polls show appointed first-term Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand with a race on her hands – and one has her clinging to a one-point lead over Republican Joe DioGuardi.

Gillibrand leads her opponent by a margin of just 45-44 among likely voters in the SurveyUSA poll, which has her carrying the five boroughs but losing upstate.

In another new poll by Quinnipiac University, Gillibrand leads DioGuardi 48-42 among likely voters. That poll has independent voters splitting nearly evenly between the two candidates, with 41 percent for Gillibrand and 42 percent for DioGuardi.
