The first independent polling in the 21st Congressional District race will be announced on Monday, when the Siena College Research Institute releases results of a new poll in the race.
U.S. Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, Republican Matt Doheny and Green Party candidate Donald Hassig are running in the new 12-county district which includes Warren, Washington and northern Saratoga counties.
No independent polling has been released in the race so far, but the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released results on August 2 of an Anzalone Liszt Research poll showing Owens with 50 percent of those surveyed, Doheny with 38 percent, Green Party candidate Donald Hassig at 4 percent and 8 percent undecided.
The margin of error was plus or minus 4.9 percent.
Doheny has said that his internal polling showed the race much closer.
