Despite bowing to White house pressure to endorse her former Democratic opponent, a Siena poll is showing that most of Dede Scozzafava’s have shifted toward Conservative Candidate Doug Hoffman. The latest numbers show a six point leap for the conservative candidate, while the Democratic party’s Owens has remained the same.
