Magellan surveyed 2,055 voters in the 9th Congressional District. Turner led Weprin 44.6% to 40.4%. The poll’s margin of error is 2.6%.
The New York Post reported Thursday that Democrats are hoping a massive last-minute ad blitz can avert a political debacle in Tuesday’s special election to replace Weiner.
“The idea that this race is so close is a humiliation for the Democratic Party,” a New York Democrat complained to the newspaper.
Weprin is facing headwinds due to lingering embarrassment over the Weiner texting scandal, and President Barack Obama’s growing unpopularity in the district, which straddles Brooklyn and Queens.
Megellan found Obama’s job approval in the district was a dismal 36%, compared to 52% who disapprove of his job performance.

Weprin’s campaign has produced a 30-second spot linking Turner to the tea parties, and portraying him as a foe of Medicare and Social Security.
