Republican Chris Lee holds a 14 point lead in a newly released poll commissioned by 2 On Your Side in the 26th District Congressional Race. But the high number of undecided voters shows the race with Democrat Alice Kryzan is definitely not decided in the remaining days before the election.
The poll from Survey USA, an independent polling company, is based on a telephone survey of 700 registered voters in the district. It was conducted earlier this week, with the majority deemed to be likely voters.
The new Survey/USA poll shows Lee with 48 percent to 34 percent for Democrat Alice Kryzan. The poll also shows 18 percent now in the category of other or undecided.
This is the second poll on the race conducted for 2 On Your Side. The first poll in late September showed Chris Lee with the same number of 48% which he has in the new poll. But, Alice Kryzan has actually slipped a few percentage points in the new poll.
Survey USA says the presence of former candidate Jon Powers on the Working Family line could still be a factor. The polling firm raises the possibility that some undecided voters who would support Powers or another minor party candidate could end up voting for Kryzan so the race could actually be closer.
