GOP Primed for Upset in Weiner District

Bob Turner (R) looks ready to assume Anthony Weiner’s former seat in NY’s 9th District.  From Politico:

Republicans are poised for a dramatic upset in next week’s special election for a New York City congressional seat, according to a new poll out Friday.

The survey, conducted by the Siena Research Institute, found Republican Bob Turner holding a 50 percent to 44 percent lead over Democrat David Weprin.

Me: If Republicans take this seat, and it appears likely that they will, it suggests that 2012 could be cataclysmic for the Democrat Party.  Maybe the Mayans were on to something after all?
