I saw an article in the NY Post that shows different polling numbers than an Emerson poll last week, which was far more favorable to Hochul. Normally I wouldn't even suggest asking to vote for a candidate on here, let alone based primarily on one issue. However, our current governor has been so horrendous that we have to get rid of her. At this time, Zeldin is our only chance and he needs better LI numbers. New York Post : Lee Zeldin trails Kathy Hochul by only 6 points in NY governor's race: poll.

Democrats win because of voter suppression here in NY. The reality is if every republican got out and voted it would be a red state. These mid-term elections usually have abysmal turnout. Republicans just believe the hype machine that we're a blue state and there's no chance. That keeps people from wanting to "waste time" voting when it "won't matter". It's our job to let people know that every vote counts more with a low turnout.

There's about 2 to 1 democrats compared to republicans in the state. That being said, the independents seem to be learning with us. Long Island is split and the city is what it is.

Even with the evacuation from NY by many conservative voters, Zeldin has a real shot at winning. He must ignore the RINO establishment advice he is probably getting to run as a "nice" "moderate" "Democrat-lite" kind of guy, that is the road to massive defeat. He must attack attack attack the Democrat disaster we have in NY. Not only should he run as a law-and-order and tax-cutting Republican, he must be against the pro-criminal policies NY has, and he should also run against the recent Hochul law weakening the rights of law-abiding New Yorkers to keep and bare arms for self-defense, and say how that law is defying the Supreme court ruling. Hochul is for letting violent predators out of jail with NO bail and for disarming regular New Yorkers, making us unable to protect ourselves from the thugs she releases.

I find it odd that Zelden always seems to be trailing the Albany Witch. If she is this bad and crime is way up in the decomratic run citys. How can she even be a factor? other then the impending fraud? She learned from the best cheater. Just saying. FUKH Let's go Zelden....

His campaign has no momentum and once again ignores the crucial NYC vote

not to mention he is way behind in campaign cash.

Hochul has a major ad campaign coming up….Zeldin can’t even afford one

Without Trump all Republicans are useless. They all fell asleep and let every opportunity slip through their fingers. What a waste.
trump wasn’t much better either. He put us in a lot a debt with his socialist programs and helped fuel the current inflation crisis by increasing the money supply

both parties are screwing you over

NYC is overwhelmingly blue. It's not bad enough the state is 2 to 1 in her party's favor, but NYC seems to run the state. If Zeldin can get Long Island, Upstate, and the independents then he has a real chance. There are those who don't like Hochul, but also aren't fans of Zeldin. I'm thinking them and the LI republicans are the targets he needs.

I hope so. He need the large city's like Rochester, Buffalo and so on. I hope he actually pulls it off.

it won’t be enough. Past elections proved that

you need some of the NYC voters to switch sides in order to win in this state. The population is way to big to ignore. It accounts for over 40-50% of the votes in this state. Sometimes more in some elections

How can he win? Has he had many rallies? Has he expressed his agenda to us? What are his prospects for the future? How does he propose to make NY a better place? How about crime? No one knows anything about him. He's not even interested in getting his word out. What has he been doing to let people know he's even running. Worst campaign of any candidate ever. I'm embarrassed to be a republican.

This is why Hochul can get away with draconian gun restrictions. She doesn't need a single Republican vote to win, not one. She knows that generally speaking gun owners are more conservative and as she clearly stated she would love us all to leave the state. As long as the leftists can count on their huge base of ignorant and government dependent NY voters she can do as she pleases. You cannot beat the sheer numbers.

It's not only Zeldin. All Republicans in office are in hiding. Since their leader Trump left not one of them have and balls to carry the torch. A soundbite on Fox News is all they do and still don't followup. They've had so many chances to pick apart this administration but just don't take advantage. They have no guts. They keep quiet and let the lies spew out. I am a republican but I no longer have faith in any of them including Zeldin.
