ONLY ONE CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT HAS EVER VOTED FOR HER:

Still beatable
DioGuardi can best Gillibrand
(DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANN, September 16, 2010, NY Post)

Bottom line: New Yorkers don't yet really know Gillibrand as "their" senator -- and they ought to know her as a chameleon who's shown no principle in her pursuit of profit.

Polls show her only barely above 50 percent before the Republican primary. Now, she is probably under 50 percent.

Joe DioGuardi, a committed conservative with a fine record in Congress, offers an alternative that voters will find attractive. He's hampered by limited name recognition, likely still in the mid 30s.

But once an incumbent is under 50 percent, she is very vulnerable, particularly with Gillibrand's record of support for every Obama big-spending scheme. And she stands for nothing in a year when voters are looking for sincerity.


This is the rare state where Democrats could build a firewall, but they have to do it mostly by making sure the win the other Senate seat and the governor's race by big margins.
