    Republican Bob Turner holds a six-point lead in next week's special election to replace disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., according to a new Siena College poll released early Friday that shows voters in the overwhelmingly Democratic district are poised to deliver a stinging rebuke to President Obama and his party.

    Turner leads Democratic Assemblyman David Weprin in the poll, 50 percent to 44 percent. Six percent of likely voters in the Sept. 13th election are undecided.

    I live in the NY market and the airwaves are being flooded with anti-Turner ads - you know, corporate jet references, old people looking like he just killed their cat, etc. Watching the local news, there were 3 ads from DNC, DCCC, and Weprin's campaign committee. Smells of desperation.

    The democrat doesn't even live in the district. It's going to look really bad for them when he loses.
