Siena polling for NY-24: Arcuri leading Hanna by 8

By Sam Foster
Via Siena Poll

Siena polls continue to confound.  Today's poll released has Democrat Mike Arcuri leading Republican challenger Richard Hanna by 8 points.  What is most confusing is that Arcuri is getting a boost from his Obama stimulus vote.

From the poll:

Six weeks before Election Day, Representative Michael Arcuri holds an eight point lead,
48-40 percent, over Republican challenger Richard Hanna in this hotly contested rematch of the 2008 race that Arcuri won 52-48 percent. On a series of six issues, voters give Arcuri the edge on four, Hanna the edge onone, and on the issue of taxes, voters see it as a toss-up, according to a Siena (College) Research Institute poll of likely voters released today. Voters support President Obama's stimulus proposal and his proposal to
eliminate tax cuts for the wealthy. They are evenly split on whether to implement or repeal the recently passed federal health care reform legislation.

I don't know whether this is good news for Mike Arcuri or not, Siena had Lazio and Paladino neck-and-neck just before Lazio was trounced.
