Dem Debate Watched By Few, Had Little Effect On Race: NY1 Poll

A poll released last night by NY1 indicates the televised debate last week between the two Democrats running for governor had little effect on the race.

In the post-debate poll, NY1 found Eliot Spitzer holds a 62% to 11% lead over Tom Suozzi. In a similar pre-debate poll, Spitzer led Suozzi 65% to 10%.

Spitzer's lead was down to 51 points from 55 prior to the debate, with just a little over a month for Suozzi to close a gap that has barely budged since February.

Suozzi holds a press conference this afternoon in Utica to plead his case for more debates, in particular one to deal with upstate issues - which were more-or-less ignored at the debate held at Pace University in lower Manhattan last week.
