That’s the headline on Rothenberg:
With a week to go until the May 24 special election in New York’s open 26th C.D., Democrat Kathy Hochul now looks well-positioned to pull off a significant upset.
Both parties agree that the race remains close — “within the margin of error” is the phrase most often used — and Republican Jane Corwin certainly has a chance to energize and turnout GOP voters in this Republican-leaning district. But Democrats seem more enthusiastic right now.
[...] The race remains very competitive, but time is simply running out for the GOP to change the dynamic of the race, especially given the Democrats’ enthusiasm edge in the district.
We’re moving the race from Lean Republican to Toss-Up/Tilt Democratic.
Count be stunned.
But it does give you an idea of just how toxic Paul Ryan’s Medicare scheme is to people, even as Republican Tea Party types and certain presidential wannabes run into each other praising him.
