PPP: Hoffman Leads Dem Owens By 15 in NY-23

The Public Policy Polling reported tonight that conservative Doug Hoffman is leading Democrat Bill Owens by 15 points in a head-to-head contest.

Here are some interesting facts from our unweighted numbers so far:

-In a three way contest Doug Hoffman leads Bill Owens by 19 points. In a two way contest Hoffman leads Owens by 15 points. So the Dede Scozzafava withdrawal and endorsement will probably tighten the race some but not nearly enough.

-58% of Republicans think that Scozzafava’s a liberal and that was obviously before her endorsement today.

-The Rush Limbaugh effect- Hoffman has a 79 point lead with Rush listeners while Owens has a 6 point lead with people who don’t listen to the show.

More… The PPP also has Christie leading Corzine by 6, 47-41 in New Jersey.

UPDATE: Country star John Rich will headline the Watertown “get-out-the-vote” rally Monday night for Hoffman.
