Survey Summary:
After John Faso’s decisive win in the recent competitive Republican Primary for Congress, he now holds a lead for
Congress as the general election begins. The results of our recently completed survey show that currently, the
th
voters in New York’s 19 Congressional District are more likely to vote for a Republican over a Democrat in the
generic ballot for Congress (46% to 42%), and they also favor John Faso over Zephyr Teachout in the general
election ballot for Congress. Faso captures the plurality of the vote, 46%, while Teachout trails with 41%, and 14%
are undecided.
