Democratic New York Governor Kathy Hochul’s lead narrowed to just 4 percentage points over Republican Lee Zeldin in a new Quinnipiac University poll out Tuesday, putting the Long Island congressman within the margin of error in a race where crime has become a dominant issue.

“Across the board, crime ranks high on the list of pressing issues. Zeldin making crime a major part of his campaign could be where he’s making inroads in this race,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Mary Snow.
