Re: NY 22
nd
CD primary

Voter / Consumer Research recently conducted two surveys of likely Republican primary voters
in New York’s 22
nd
Congressional District. The first survey was conducted May 1-5 with a
sample size of 400 and a margin of error of +/-4.91%. The second survey was conducted May
28-29 with a sample size of 300 and a margin of error of +/-5.67%.

The results indicate that Congressman Richard Hanna (R-Barneveld) was leading the Republican
primary by a healthy margin and had expanded his lead from earlier in May. Specifically, 61%
of GOP primary voters most recently expressed that they plan to vote for Congressman Hanna,
while 20% say they plan to vote for Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney (R-New Hartford).

Q: In the Republican primary for Congress, as of right now who would you vote for
between (ROTATE) Richard Hanna and Claudia Tenney?

May 5 May 29 Change
Hanna 52% 61% +9%
Tenney 31% 20% -11%

The changes in the head-to-head question are also reflected in changes in name ID numbers.
Congressman Hanna’s favorability increased from 64% to 68% while his unfavorability dropped
from 23% to 14%. At the same time, Assemblywoman Tenney’s favorability declined from 41%
to 26% while the number of voters with an unfavorable impression rose from 13% to 24%.

Q: Here are the names of some people in the news. Please tell me for each of these
whether you have a favorable or unfavorable impression. If you are not aware of the
name just let me know.

It is important to note that while Tenney is not as well known as Hanna, she is not a dark horse
candidate either – 68% of voters either expressed an opinion of her or said they were aware of
her but had no opinion.
