Polling and Predictions for the NY Governor Race
We just Launched our Live Election Day Senate Forecast! Follow it here!
Kathy Hochul ascended to the Governorship after the fall of Andrew Cuomo. Hochul defied early expectations of a competitive primary and easily dispatched her opponents to secure the nomination for a second term. She will now face Long Island Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin, who defeated Andrew Giuliani to claim his party’s nomination. Zeldin faces tough odds in the general election, both thanks to the New York political terrain, and his close ties to Donald Trump, who never got more than 38% of the vote in the Empire State.
RacetotheWH launched in the 2020 election cycle, and our forecast was one of the nation's most accurate. In 2021, our NYC Mayor Forecast successfully predicted Eric Adam’s narrow victory over Kathryn Garcia, getting within 1.5% of the final result.
