WASHINGTON — Polls regarding the Tom Reed – Tracy Mitrano race for Congress seem to show two very divergent results.
A recent poll showed Mitrano trailing Reed by seven percent as of last month, with a 47-40 lead for Reed, the incumbent.
However, a second poll, released by the Reed campaign, paints a very different picture.
The second poll, has Reed up by almost 19 points. The poll tallies show Reed at 54.6 percent, Mitrano at 35.9 percent and Libertarian candidate Andrew Kolstee at 2.2 percent.
The poll shows the following vote totals as Reed, the Republican, Conservative, and Independence Party, receiving 1,125 votes; Mitrano, the Democrat and Working Families Party, with 738 votes, Kolstee, the Libertarian candidate, with 45 votes and 151 respondents listed as undecided.
In 2016, Reed defeated Mitrano with 130,323 votes (54.2 percent) to Mitrano’s 109,932 votes (45.8 percent).
