In the middle of back and forth accusations and responses about whether Democratic congressional nominee Dana Balter would vote to raise taxes, Suffolk University released a poll (8/20-23; 513 NY-24 likely voters) that projects two-term US Rep. John Katko (R-Syracuse) holding a strong advantage over Ms. Balter, a visiting college professor. He leads by a sizable 54-39% margin.
Rep. Katko has run very strong here in his two elections. In 2014, he unseated Rep. Dan Maffei (D-Syracuse), 58-39%. He was then re-elected in 2016 with 61% of the vote.
