This morning, the Siena Research Institute released poll results that show Democrat Ted O'Brien ahead of Republican Sean Hanna in the state Senate's 55th District.
The poll results show that, of the 476 likely voters interviewed, 50 percent said they'd vote for O'Brien, while 39 percent said they'd vote for Hanna.
On the issue of who's waged a more negative campaign, 42 percent said it's Hanna and 23 percent said it's O'Brien. District residents have received many mail pieces from an anonymous group, Common Sense, making false or misleading attacks against O'Brien.
Siena's release on the poll is available here.
