New York State: The Presidential Contest
The presidential election in New York…closer but still blue: U.S. Senator John Kerry leads President George Bush in the campaign for New York’s 31 electoral votes. Kerry receives the support of 48% of the state’s registered voters compared with 40% for Bush. Independent candidate Ralph Nader receives 4%, and 8% are undecided. In a similar poll conducted in April, Kerry’s lead was 17 points.
