Reynolds (Incumbent R) is badly trailing Davis (D), poll shows
Democrat Jack Davis has opened a significant lead over Republican incumbent Thomas M. Reynolds in a congressional contest fueled by Reynolds' association with the Mark Foley sex scandal.

Davis leads Reynolds 48 percent to 33 percent in a new Zogby International poll conducted for The Buffalo News, prompting pollster John Zogby to conclude that Davis poses a genuine threat to the longtime powerhouse from Clarence.

"There is no other way to look at these numbers except to say Tom Reynolds is in trouble," the Utica-based Zogby said.

14. Wow, dude says he forced Foley to resign. First I've ever heard that
it was forced on him by the Repubs. Hastert even said he resigned so quickly himself they didn't have a hand in it. I wonder who's telling the truth?

5. This entire episode has greatly improved my mother's health.
I haven't seen her this lively and upbeat in years. Who says the GOP doesn't care about improving the health of our seniors?

Incumbents down 15 points a month before an election are toast. Actually, more like a charcoal briquette.

8. Ignore the Zogby polls
Davis is winning, as a Survey USA poll showed him up by 5%. But Zogby has a crappy reputation.

12. That Survey USA poll was a week ago.
Before Reynolds CoS resigned. Before Hastert called Reynolds a liar. Before the most recent several sets of pages came forward. And before Reynolds tried to use children as shields at a press conference.

A lot can change in a week.
