A poll by the independent Trafalgar Group shows that the gap between the incumbent Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul and Republican challenger Rep. Lee Zeldin has narrowed to just a 4 percent, the New York Post reported.

The survey shows a significant narrowing in Hochul’s a lead, which in a poll conducted by SurveyUSA and released on Aug. 23 found the governor with a commanding 24 point lead, with 55% for Hochul compared to 31% for Zeldin, and 14% undecided.

The Trafalgar Group poll of 1,091 likely voters was conducted on Wednesday and Thursday, showing Hochul at 47.8% and Zeldin at 43.4%, with 2.7% supporting Libertarian Larry Sharpe and 6.7% undecided. Hochul’s lead is just a bit beyond the margin of error of 2.9%.

In his social media, Zeldin touted the results by saying, “People are fed up with Hochul’s feckless leadership. This poll underscores our unprecedented momentum.”
