Slaughter re-opens 10-point lead over Brooks 

With five days remaining before the election, incumbent Democrat Louise Slaughter has regained her 10 point lead over her Republican challenger, Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks, in the race for the 25th Congressional District, according to a new Siena poll out this morning.

Brooks had narrowed the gap to about five points early last month.

Slaughter leads Brooks 86 percent to 12 percent among Democrats, who hold a nine-point enrollment edge in the district. Brooks, according to the poll, has the support of about 75 percent of Republicans and continues to hold a small lead over Slaughter among independents.

More women favor Slaughter, 55 percent to 38 percent, while men are almost evenly split, the poll says.

The race has gotten nasty and personal, with outside groups pumping tons of money into both campaigns. Despite that, Siena says that Slaughter "continues to have a strong positive favorability rating, largely unchanged over the last five weeks of a bruising campaign."

Brooks' favorability rating has dropped moderately, the poll says.
