It's a statistical dead heat in the race for the 19th Congressional District.

Republican John Faso is ahead of Democrat Zephyr Teachout in the latest Time Warner Cable News/Siena Research Institute Poll, by just one percentage point -- 43 percent to 42.

In the poll, both Teachout and Faso have 75 percent of Democrats and Republicans backing them up, respectively. Independents are also virtualy split, with 42 percent on Faso's side and 41 percent for Teachout. 

Teachout leads in the heavily Democratic counties of Ulster and Dutchess, but in the rest of the district, Faso is favored by the majority of voters.

Siena Pollster Steve Greenberg says both candidates still have a lot of work to do. 

"Fifty-five percent of voters say they have not been contacted or have not heard or seen a Faso commercial," Greenberg said. "A smaller number, 44 percent of these likely voters, say they haven't seen a Teachout commercial or been contacted by the Teachout campaign. So six weeks to go, these campaigns both have a lot of voters they have not yet touched."

Both candidates previously ran for the governor's seat. Teachout battled Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2014 for the Democratic nomination, while Faso was the Republican nominee in 2006 against Democrat Eliot Spitzer.
