According to a poll done by McLaughlin & Associates, Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) chief Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) is in hot water as his Republican challenger, Assemblyman Mike Lawler, leads him by four percentage points. 

Breitbart reports:

Lawler received 49 percent of the vote compared to Maloney’s 45 percent. With 400 likely voter respondents, the poll was conducted September 6-8 and has a margin of error of 4.5 percent.

The poll was taken less than two months before Election Day, offering hope to Republicans who believe it is possible to flip the Empire State’s Seventeen Congressional District, which “lean[s] Democrat,” according to Cook Political Report.

Responding to the poll, Lawler told the Post, “I will fight to cut taxes and spending to tackle inflation and end cashless bail to restore safety in our communities… That’s what this election is about and the poll numbers bear it out.”

Republicans across the county are aiming to take back the House by netting enough seats to obtain the majority.

Lawler added, “On Nov. 8, we will defeat Nancy Pelosi’s campaign manager and serve as a check on the Biden administration.”
