    Politico's story today said explicitly that the private polling has Hochul on top, and Siena is accurate.

    Here's the link:  http://www.politico.com/...

    And here's the opening 3 grafs, emphasis mine and note that a quote from Carl Forti appears to have what is either a typo or misspeak when he refers to "Davis" but probably means "Hochul":

    Republicans are growing increasingly pessimistic over their prospects in a race for a western New York congressional seat the party was once thought a lock to hold.

    With the contest entering its final weekend, party officials acknowledge what a Siena College poll released Saturday confirmed: Republican Jane Corwin narrowly trails Democrat Kathy Hochul. The Republican has so far failed to capture a portion of GOP votes that instead might be cast toward Jack Davis, despite a cascade of late attacks targeting the tea party candidate as a Democrat in sheep’s clothing.

    “Davis hasn’t been losing any ground, and that makes it tough for Corwin,” said Carl Forti, a GOP consultant and political director for American Crossroads, which has aired nearly $700,000 in TV ads over the last several weeks.
