Bob Turner, Republican candidate, holds 6-point lead over Democrat David Weprin in NY-9 race

More bad news for Democrats across the country, and worse news for Congressional hopeful David Weprin: GOP candidate Bob Turner is pulling ahead in the race to fill ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner’s House seat.

One day before New York voters head to the polls in Tuesday’s special election, a new Public Policy Polling survey shows Turner leading Weprin 47% to 41%.

“If Republicans win this race on Tuesday it’s real-world evidence of how unpopular Barack Obama is right now,” said PPP President Dean Debnam. “Approval polls are one thing, but for the GOP to win in a heavily Democratic district like this would send a strong message about how unhappy voters are.”

A Siena poll released Friday also found Turner ahead by six points.
