After having an early double digit lead seven weeks ago, Democratic Congressman Bill Owens is now locked in a near dead heat with his Republican challenger Matt Doheny. Owens has the support of 44% of likely voters and Doheny has the support of 43%, according to a Siena College Research Institute poll of likely voters released yesterday.  Doheny now has a tiny two point lead among independent voters after having previously trailed Owens among independents by 30 points. Owens had led among voters in the portion of the district he
currently represents by 24 points and that lead is now seven points.  The negative advertising has taken a toll on
the view voters have of both candidates. Owens continues to have a better favorability rating than Doheny, although 38% of voters now view him unfavorably, up from 22%. Doheny's favorable rating is up seven points and his unfavorable rating is up by 10 points.
